Own your own Stanley Cup with innovative 2017 $50 pure silver coin commemorating the 125th anniversary hockey’s ultimate prize. In 1892, the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley, donated a silver bowl for the purpose of fostering a competitive spirit between Canada’s amateur hockey teams. From this expression of support sprung a rich legacy, as the Stanley Cup evolved into one of the most revered trophy in professional sport. This unusual and visually striking shaped coin weighs three ounces of pure silver with a height of 58 mm, and has a limited mintage of just 5,000 pieces. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.
Developed by the Royal Canadian Mint’s team of R&D specialists, engineers and engravers, this fine silver coin has a unique shape that is instantly recognizable to the many hockey fans that have dreamed of hoisting the Stanley Cup at center ice.
The reverse design presents a reduced-scale replica of the illustrious hockey trophy, all in a magnificent reverse proof finish. Detailed engraving recreates the ringed appearance of the Cup’s rounded barrel base, topped by the silver bowl that replicates the one donated by the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley. The finer details are enhanced by the application of different finishes that alter the way light reflects off the coin’s silver surface, thus infusing the innovative design with a life-like sense of depth and dimension. The obverse is flat, and features the commemorative dates “1892-2017”, the words “THE STANLEY CUP LA COUPE STANLEY”, the engraved face value “50 DOLLARS”, and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
