This 2015 $10 fine silver coin is one of seven in a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint that celebrates the Canadian franchises of the National Hockey League (NHL). Hockey's beloved status in Canada makes it "our game."


The Design:

The reverse of the coin pays homage to the Ottawa Senators, with their logo tucked neatly to the left side of the coin, while a silhouette of an advancing hockey player speeding across the ice towards the viewer is seen on the right. The colours of the Ottawa Senators are brought to life through the use of advanced "sheer effect" colourization that makes the colours flash fantastically under the light. This coin boasts a reverse-proof finish, with text indicating the face value of "10 DOLLARS", the country "CANADA" and the date "2015" circling the rim.

The coin is struck in a half-ounce of 99.99% fine silver, and boasts an unusually low mintage of only 5,000 pieces. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.


The Ottawa Senators:

The Ottawa Senators are based in Ottawa, Ontario, and play their home games at the 20,500 capacity Canadian Tire Centre. The team is the second NHL franchise to use the Ottawa Senators name. The original Ottawa Senators, founded in 1883, won 11 Stanley Cups and played in the NHL from 1917 until 1934. On December 6, 1990, after a two-year public campaign, the NHL awarded Ottawa a new franchise, which began play in the 1992–93 season. The team has seen success, qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs in fourteen of the past seventeen seasons; their achievements have been reflected in game attendance, averaging one of the highest attendance rates in the league. Fans of the Ottawa Senators are known as Sens Army.
