Puck drops on ‘Our Game’ coin series

As the Toronto Maple Leafs prepare for its home opening game tonight against arch-rivals, the Montreal Canadiens, it’s fitting that yesterday the Royal Canadian Mint released its 2015 edition of its “our game” series celebrating the National Hockey League’s Canadian Franchises.

The mint has created a coin for each of Canada’s seven NHL teams: Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and the Vancouver Canucks.

Each coin is .9999 pure silver, with a diameter of 34 mm and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. Each coin features the use of an advanced “Sheer Effect” colourization technique used for the first time. According to the RCM, this effect makes the colour glitter under light.

The painted reverse design features a stylized silhouette of a hockey player on a rink, along with the each team’s logo painted in the official team colours.

The reverse is engraved with the word “CANADA”  the date “2015” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth IIby Susanna Blunt.

Sales of the coins are restricted to Canada and the U.S. only.
