Description

This 2015 Montreal Canadiens $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 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 Design:

The reverse of the coin pays homage to the Montreal Canadiens, 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 Montreal Canadiens 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 Montreal Canadiens:

French nicknames for the team include Les Canadiens and Les Habitants, while the team's main English nickname is the Habs, an abbreviation of "Les Habitants". Founded in 1909, the Canadiens are the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team, as well as one of the oldest North American sports franchises. The Canadiens have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other franchise, winning 24 championships. In 2008, a year which also marked their 100th anniversary, the Canadiens won 5–2 over the Florida Panthers to become the first team in NHL history to reach 3,000 victories. Notable Montreal Canadien players include Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Ken Dryden, Guy LaFleur and Patrick Roy.
