Description

On the ice or in the streets, youth hockey is a timeless tradition that plays out year-round from coast to coast, and embodies the purest spirit of the sport! This fine silver coin pays tribute to this nationwide passion to play that has endured for over 100 years, and celebrates fan loyalties to CanadaÕs beloved NHL¨ teamsÑincluding the Montreal Canadiens¨. The eye-catching combination of full colour over detailed engraving captures the timeless spirit of the game, as seen in the enthusiastic play of todayÕs youth!

The reverse design by Canadian artist Silvia Pecota features full colour over an engraved hockey-themed scene set at an outdoor rink. The sun has set over this neighbourhood, but that hasnÕt stopped a group of youths from continuing their game well into the evening. Under the glow of a street light, five youths proudly wear their team colours and skates as they play over the mirror-like
ice surface. While one player looks on, two players find themselves tied up in their efforts to get the puck; meanwhile, another player has possession of the puck and takes the shotÑitÕs a goal! Kneeling on leg pads, the goaltender turns to look behind in disbelief at the puck in the net. Above the scene is the Montreal Canadiens logo, with its iconic red ÒCÓ outlined in blue and white, and a smaller ÒHÓ inside.

A must-have for sports collectors and hockey fans: Each coin is crafted from 99.99% fine silver and is an official licensed product of the NHL¨.
