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 Ottawa Senators¨. 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 scene that celebrates hockey in the nationÕs capital, where young Ottawa Senators fans head outdoors to play street hockey. The autumn colours of Eastern Ontario are in full view in the background, where the red, orange and yellow maple foliage adds a burst of colour to a balmy afternoon in this quiet residential neighbourhood. Four youths on roller blades scramble for the puck. One boy rolls behind the unguarded net to join the boy and girl in the foreground, each one bearing a wide grin that is a natural expression of their enthusiasm and deep love for the game. Above them, the team logo of the Ottawa Senators features a forward-facing Roman senator wrapped in a red-coloured cape and set against a semi-circle of laurel leaves, whose ÒOÓ shape is associated with the home city of Ottawa.

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¨.
