As the world turns its attention to Brazil for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, our famous loonie is at it again, sporting a special design to express pride in Canada's athletes and to cheer them on.

It all began during the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games when a loonie was embedded under the ice. 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 Olympic ice ever since. In 2004, the Mint began issuing Lucky Loonie coins to celebrate Canada at every summer and winter Games. This year, the 2016 Lucky Loonie features a new look and design element—it's engraved with the words LUCKY LOONIE / DOLLAR PORTE-BONHEUR, its popular moniker.

Celebrate Canada's Olympic and Paralympic Teams, and express your own pride with this very special 99.99% pure silver coin with the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Team logos proudly displayed in colour.

Show your Canadian Olympic and Paralympic pride for Rio 2016! Order today!

Special Features:
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Express your pride in Canada's Olympic and Paralympic teams with this upscale Lucky Loonie crafted in 99.99% pure silver and selectively enhanced with colour to make the team's official logo shine.
  • Wrap one up as a gift for your favourite Canadian Olympic and Paralympic fan!
  • 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.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Derek Wicks, your coin has created an energizing design of a common loon on the water, its arched body and outstretched wings poised for take-off. It's a symbolic salute to Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes as they soar to new heights at 2016.

Canada's pride is further expressed through the stylized maple leaf in the background, while the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Team logos and LUCKY LOONIE / DOLLAR PORTE-BONHEUR line the bottom edge of the coin.

Packaging:

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

                It's small and expensive. You would be much better to get the silver 1/2 ounce maple leaf coin that looks like the penny. Much better value for your money.

                  This was a gift and took 6 weeks for the order to arrive. This happened last year when I ordered something on Nov 8 and it was delivered Dec 18, and they were Christmas gifts that needed to be reshipped. Before that, most of my orders were received shortly after order so not sure why there are now such big delays.

                            The contract we have with the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (whose logos we feature on the coin) restricts us from selling the coin outside Canada.

                            No. The pendant carries a coin 27 mm in diameter; the Lucky Loonie coin that is 26.5 mm in diameter may wiggle and move in the pendant.

                            A:

                            'Archival' quality is a highly subjective term. The floating frame's transparent, flexible silicone membranes will not cause the quality of the coin to deteriorate, as long as the coin is kept inside its own capsule.

                            Thanks for your interest in the Royal Canadian Mint coins. We have tested in our Boutique the Lucky Loonie coin in the smallest bezel (27mm) and it fits/stays in place but will be turning in the bezel. Thanks for wearing your Lucky Loonie, it makes us proud.
