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 Winnipeg Jets. 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, which is set at an outdoor rink in Manitoba. Beneath the overhead lights, four youths share a love for the game as they continue to play into the evening. In the foreground, one player in red, skates towards the boards to retrieve the puck, while the two other players on the right are still in position from the last attempt to score. The goaltender stands before the net, somewhat relaxed but with eyes trained on the two players closest to the crease. All four players are proudly wearing the blue, white and red colours of their beloved home team; above them is the official logo of the Winnipeg Jets, featuring a fighter jet over a maple leaf and all enclosed in a blue roundel.

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¨.
