The ideal gift for a Toronto Blue JaysTM fan! Order today!

The year 2016 marks the 40th season of play for the Toronto Blue JaysTM, who have given Canadians plenty of reasons to rally behind their "home" team! With six East Division titles, two American League pennants and two World Series Championship titles to their credit, "Canada's team" has a history of generating buzz through great plays and incredible moments.

Who could forget the final play of the 1992 World Series, when the Jays became the first team from outside the United States to win the Fall Classic? Or a nation's frenzy as Joe Carter's walk-off home run won a second consecutive championship—on Canadian soil, no less!

Now, coming off an incredible 2015 season, the excitement and passion builds once again as the Toronto Blue JaysTM look to add more heart-stopping moments to the team's incredible 40-year highlight reel.

An ideal addition to your Toronto Blue JaysTM' memorabilia! Order today!

Special Features:
  • Includes official logo of the Toronto Blue JaysTM!
  • Show your team colours—celebrate the history of Canada's MLB baseball team and the Toronto Blue JaysTM' 40th season of play!
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! A must-have official MLB collectible: Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, the coin's bold colours and limited mintage will make it a home run for baseball fans and collectors alike!
  • CUSTOM GRAPHIC BEAUTY BOX! Packaged in a custom graphic beauty box, whose theme captures the energetic spirit of this sports-themed celebration.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel, your coin combines skilful engraving with the application of vibrant colour in a dynamic design that celebrates the history of the Toronto Blue JaysTM. A wave comprised of the team's official colours conveys energy and motion in the background, which provides a colourful contrast to the silhouette of a baseball player who has just hit the ball—a reminder of the many homeruns throughout the Jays' history. Next to the player is a large engraved "40", which commemorates the 40th season of play since Toronto was granted its MLB franchise in 1976. To the right of the player is the official logo of the Toronto Blue JaysTM.

Did you know...
  • A very Canadian start: A snowstorm started just before the Jays' very first home game at Toronto's Exhibition Stadium on April 7, 1977, but the freezing temperatures didn't slow down the home team—they won 9-5 against the Chicago White SoxTM, thanks in part to Doug Ault's two homeruns.
  • The initial plan to bring MLB baseball to Toronto involved the relocation of the San Francisco GiantsTM—the team would have been known as the Toronto Giants!
  • Over 30,000 entries were submitted during a "Name the Team" contest held in June and July 1976, resulting in more than 4,000 suggested names! From that list, specially appointed panels of judges selected 10 names to submit to the Board of Directors, who, on August 12, 1976, announced the team would be officially known as the Toronto Blue JaysTM Baseball Club.
  • Since the "Blue Jays" name was submitted by 154 people, a draw was held to select the grand prize winner, who won a pair of season tickets for the team's inaugural season and an all-expenses paid trip to watch the club in action during Spring Training in Dunedin, Florida.
  • When it opened on June 3, 1989, SkyDome (renamed the Rogers Centre in 2005) was the first stadium to feature a motorized, fully retractable roof and an adjoining hotel with rooms overlooking the field.
  • Only 16 years after their debut, the Blue Jays made history in 1992 by becoming the "youngest" expansion team in American League history to win the pennant, and the first non-American team in MLB history to win the World Series!
  • The team's first mascot, BJ Birdy, was introduced in 1979 but replaced in 1999 with Ace, who has been entertaining the home crowd ever since! 
  • A 12-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner, second baseman Roberto Alomar was the first Blue Jay to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and is still the only player to have his number retired by the organization. Fans attending a Jays home game can see his number 12 hanging above the video board!

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a full colour beauty box.

                  • Q:

                    Where is the detail?
                    The Toronto Blue Jays have (for all but a couple of years) always had "BLUE JAYS" written across the front of their jerseys. Since the 1990's the jerseys have been a button up style. The pants have ALWAYS had triple stripes down the pant legs.
                    Really do not understand the lack of these style details on the player depicted on the coin.
                    I would have expected detail similar to the recent hockey goalie coins that have loads of detail on the goalie's jersey.
                    A little disappointing for a coin that celebrates Canada's only MLB multi World Champion Baseball team.
