Learning to skate in Canada usually follows shortly after learning to walk and is an essential part of discovering a lifetime of fun, fitness, and sport. This Canadian right-of-passage is beautifully captured in this 2014 dated pure silver $10 coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.  The original artwork by Canadian artist Tony Harris features a little girl out for the first time on one of the country’s many outdoor rinks. Mintage is limited to 10,000. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

A young girl in a dark pink coat and helmet bundled in her mitts and snow pants and donning her first pair of skates smiles widely as the man behind her holds her hands to keep her upright. The man, dressed in dark blue outerwear, a red toque and white-laced black hockey skates, bends gently over his charge, coaxing her shakily forward on the smooth surface of the outdoor rink. Behind the skaters, we see the rough wooden side boards of the rink. A small orange hockey ball sits at the base of the boards. In the background is a snowy street lined with brick houses rendered in beautiful detail and full colour and dotted with snow-covered evergreens. A bright blue sky dotted with soft grey clouds rises above the heart-warming scene.
