In honour of the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup—hockey’s most coveted prize, and commonly known as “the hardest trophy to win in sports”—J & M Coin and Jewellery is hosting a coin exchange tomorrow at its Metrotown Store.
Attendees will have an opportunity to receive up to four of the Royal Canadian Mint’s new limited-edition 25-cent circulation coins honouring the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup. Again, there is a limit of four quarters a guest, while supplies last. The exchange will be held from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at 348-4800 Kingsway in Burnaby, B.C.
