Description

AN OUTSTANDING RCM FIRST: Introducing the first ever Stanley Cup-shaped coin! 1892, the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley, donated a silver bowl for the purpose of fostering a competitive spirit between Canada's amateur hockey teams. From this expression of support sprung a rich legacy, as the Stanley Cup evolved into one of the most revered trophy in professional sports, and a celebrated icon in Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup's origins, with a one-of-a-kind shaped coin that pays tribute to hockey's ultimate prize.

Developed by the Royal Canadian Mint's team of R&D specialists, engineers and engravers, this fine silver coin has a unique shape that is instantly recognizable to hockey fans that have ever dreamed of hoisting the Stanley Cup at center ice. The reverse design presents a reduced-scale replica of the illustrious hockey trophy, all in a magnificent reverse proof finish. Detailed engraving recreates the ringed appearance of the Cup's rounded barrel base, topped by the silver bowl that replicates the one donated by the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley. The finer details are enhanced by the application of different finishes that alter the way light reflects off the coin's silver surface, thus infusing the innovative design with a life-like sense of depth and dimension. The obverse is flat, and features the commemorative dates "1892-2017", the words "THE STANLEY CUP LA COUPE STANLEY", the engraved face value "50 DOLLARS", and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The ultimate collectible for any hockey fan, this coin is a fantastic addition to any collection that features technological firsts or sports themes.
