Keep it. Give it. Share the Pride.

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.

Express your pride in Canada's Olympic and Paralympic teams for Rio 2016 with this Lucky Loonie Special Wrap Roll.

Special Features:
  • A unique keepsake limited worldwide to 52,000 rolls of 25 coins per roll.
  • A unique and powerful keepsake to show your favourite athlete how proud you are. Regardless which activity or sport they are involved in, this roll will be a precious memento of their achievements.
  • These sought-after rolls are specially packaged in a commemorative paper wrap.

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 Rio 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:

These sought-after rolls are specially packaged in a commemorative paper wrap.
