Description

The year 2016 marks the 40th season of play for the Toronto Blue Jaysª, who have provided Canadians with plenty of reasons to rally behind the "home" team! Coming off an incredible 2015 season, the excitement and passion builds once again as fans look forward to many more great plays; join the Royal Canadian Mint in celebrating "Canada's team" and their incredible journey through this one-of-a-kind collector item crafted in 99.99% pure silver.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel combines skillful engraving with the application of vibrant colour in a dynamic design that celebrates the history of the Toronto Blue Jaysª. A wave comprised of the team's official colours conveys energy and motion in the background, which provides a colourful contrast to the silhouette of a baseball player who has just hit the ball, a reminder of the many homeruns throughout the Jays' history. Next to the player is a large engraved "40", and seasons/saisons printed underneath which commemorates the 40th season of play since Toronto was granted its MLBª franchise in 1976. To the right of the player is the team's official logo. Also engraved on the reverse is the word "CANADA", the face value "20 DOLLARS" and the year "2016". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A must-have official MLBª collectible: Crafted from 99.99% pure silver, the coin's bold colours and limited mintage will make it a home run for baseball fans and collectors alike!
