Express your pride in the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Teams as they head to Rio 2016! Order today!

As the world turns its attention to Brazil for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, you can celebrate Canada's athletes with this unique and historic proof silver dollar. It's inspired by the loonie that was embedded in the ice during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. That year, Canada's men's and women's hockey teams both went on to win gold—and the “lucky loonie” legend was born, bringing its special magic to the Canadian athletes ever since.

A perfect gift for someone who needs a little luck at their next sporting event! Order today!

Special features:
  • Express your pride in the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Teams with this limited edition proof silver selectively coloured for enhanced visual effect.
  • A unique and powerful keepsake to show your favourite athlete how proud you are. Regardless which activity or sport they are involved in, this pure silver coin will be a precious memento of their achievements.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Crafted in 99.99% pure silver, your coin is GST/HST exempt!

About the Design:

The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group is an energizing montage showcasing the diversity of exciting events that will propel athletes to new heights as they compete for gold at Rio 2016. The Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Team logos punctuate the design with colour.

Packaging:

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

                    Poorly designed.
                    Not a legacy piece.
                    The mint can do better.
