In 1917, Torontonians welcomed an exciting new reason to embrace winter—the NHL and the franchise that would become the Toronto Maple Leafs® were born. For generations, people had been taking to the ice as soon as the water froze. It was a rite of passage for every parent and child. From sons who skated and cheered alongside Dad, to young women who challenged tradition by yielding hockey sticks, the Toronto Maple Leafs® would spark dreams of greatness far and wide. This coin embodies the enduring spirit of Leafs™ Nation—a passion that united people on and off the ice, and inspired young and old alike to carve fond memories on winter ice.
Two hockey sticks face off above the Leafs’ current maple leaf logo in this dynamic design by Canadian artist Steven Rosati; the vintage stick to the left honouring the team’s storied past while the stick to the right delivers an enthusiastic nod to the modern game. The Mint’s unique security feature is positioned between the two sticks like a hockey puck, and the Leafs’ current logo shines below them. It is flanked by the years “1917” and “2017” while a ring of 100 dots further highlights the team’s centennial. The coin’s denomination is engraved in a semi-circle at the top of the coin with a puck positioned between the words “Canada” and “Dollar.”
A must-have collectible for every Toronto Maple Leafs® fan—and hockey fans everywhere!
