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 Vancouver Canucks, 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 Vancouver Canucks 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 Vancouver Canucks:

The Vancouver Canucks are based in Vancouver, British Columbia. In its NHL history, the team has advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals three times. The Vancouver Canucks' mascot is an orca whale named Fin Orca or Fin the Whale. He is often seen banging a First Nations drum, or skating around during intermissions firing t-shirts out of a compressed air cannon. On occasion, "smoke" also comes out of the blowhole on his head. Fin has his trademarked chomping where he bites the heads of fans. Notable Hockey Hall of Famers that once played on the Vancouver Canucks are Mats Sundin, Mark Messier and Pavel Bure.
