Description

Since 1892, the Stanley Cup¨ has stood as a prestigious mark of excellence. It has become hockeyÕs most coveted prizeÑthe end goal for every NHL season, and a dream for all whose passion for our national sport runs deep. Celebrate one of the most famous sports trophies of all time with this special wrap roll of commemorative coins, which proudly pay tribute to the 125-year history of a treasured national icon.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn brings together hockeyÕs past and present in a momentous celebration of the Stanley CupÕs¨ 125th anniversary! The legendary trophy itself is symbolically positioned in the centre of the field, where detailed engraving recreates its multi-tiered bands. The bowl at the top is unmistakable, and serves as a powerful link to the trophyÕs origins in 1892, when the sixth Governor General of Canada donated a silver bowl to be awarded to CanadaÕs top amateur team. To the left, the helmet-less player represents the game as it was played in the late 19th century; to the right is a more modern snapshot of how hockey is played today, 125 years after Lord StanleyÕs history-making donation.
Also engraved on the reverse is a banner bearing the commemorative dates Ò1892Ó and Ò2017Ó, as well as the words ÒCOUPE STANLEY CUPÓ and Ò125 YEARS/ANSÓ. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

An affordable collectible and the perfect gift for any hockey fan, young and old!

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

Since 1892, the Stanley Cup¨ has stood as a prestigious mark of excellence. It has become hockeyÕs most coveted prizeÑthe end goal for every NHL season, and a dream for all whose passion for our national sport runs deep.
Beyond the annual ceremony at centre ice, where champions hoist it high for all to see, Canadians regard the Stanley Cup¨ as a revered cultural icon. It began with a Governor GeneralÕs desire to foster competition among CanadaÕs amateur teams; but Lord StanleyÕs donation of a silver bowl has taken on far greater meaning over the years. Having passed through the hands of many of the gameÕs legends, the Stanley Cup¨ has become the embodiment of a winter sport that is at the heart of some of the proudest moments in our nationÕs history!
Did you knowÉ
- No other trophy in professional sports bears the engraved names of the winning teamÕs players, staff AND management!
- Each of the five-band barrels offers enough room on the Cup to engrave 13 winning teams, with a limit of 52 engraved names. When all the rings are full, the oldest band (at the top) is removed and preserved at the Hockey Hall of Fame, while a new band is added to the bottom of the Cup.
- Originally known as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, the iconic silver bowl was donated on March 18, 1892 by the Governor General of Canada, Sir Frederick Arthur Stanley, as a challenge cup to be awarded to CanadaÕs top amateur hockey club.
- Its appearance has changed over the years: until the late 1940s, the addition of tiered rings and narrow bands gave the Cup a cigar-like shape that earned it the nickname of Òthe Stovepipe Cup.Ó A redesign transformed it into a two-piece trophy with a removable bowl and collar until its now iconic, one-piece design was introduced in 1958.
