On today’s date in 1990, the Toronto Argonauts beat the BC Lions 68-43 at the SkyDome (now the Rogers Centre), setting a Canadian Football League (CFL) combined scoring record of 111 points.
In 2012, the Royal Canadian Mint issued an eight-coin set to mark the 100th Grey Cup (where the Argonauts beat the Calgary Stampeders 35-22). As part of the set, each team – the Lions, Stampeders, Argonauts, Blue Bombers, Alouettes, Eskimos, Tiger-Cats and Roughriders – was commemorated on a 25-cent coin that was issued alongside a pair of stamps.
With a weight of 12.61 grams, the cupro-nickel coins have a 35-mm diameter and feature the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Filip Mroz, of Bensimon Byrne, designed the reverse.
