The Orignal Lucky Loonie
In what is now a legendary tale, a Canadian icemaker embedded a Loonie at centre ice prior to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City to bring good luck to Canada’s gold medal-winning men's and women's hockey teams.

In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mint created the first Lucky Loonie as a way of passing on its special magic to Canadian athletes as they departed for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.

The Mint is continuing this tradition as each member of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Teams will receive a 2012 Lucky Loonie upon their arrival in London. Go Canada!

Design:
The 2012 Lucky Loonie circulation coin features the iconic loon as it spreads its majestic wings while sitting on rippling Canadian lake waters. The coin also features the Canadian Olympic Team logo, in celebration and support of Canada’s athletes as they compete at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Wish our Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes luck in London!
