This 2015 $10 fine silver coin collection includes all seven coins in a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint that celebrates the Canadian franchises of the National Hockey League (NHL). Hockey's beloved status in Canada makes it "our game."
These coins pay homage to the seven Canadian NHL franchises, which includes the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks. The reverse of the coins respectively display the logo of each team, tucked neatly to the left side of the coin, while a silhouette of an advancing hockey player speeding across the ice towards the viewer is seen on the right. The colours of the team on each coin are brought to life through the use of advanced "sheer effect" colourization, which makes the colours flash fantastically under the light. The coins boast a reverse-proof finish, with text that indicates the face value ("10 DOLLARS"), the country ("CANADA"), and the date ("2015") circling the rim.
Each coin in the set is struck in a half-ounce of 99.99% fine silver, and boasts an unusually low mintage of only 5,000 pieces. As pure silver coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this collection is GST/HST exempt.
NHL Medallion and Stamp Set, Bobby Hull (issue price $14.95)
In 2001, the Royal Canadian Mint and Canada Post paid tribute to one of the greatest hockey players of all time – Bobby Hull. This presentation includes a frosted relief medallion featuring Bobby Hull and a double image Canada Post 47 cent stamp displayed attractively in an embossed metal case.
Lightning speed… a blistering slapshot … unerring accuracy … these traits quickly let renowned left-wing legend Bobby Hull to the top of the NHL, where he was top goal-scorer for seven of his 16 seasons. Winner of the Art Ross Trophy three times, Lady Byng Trophy once and Hart Trophy twice, Hull was named to the First NHL All-star Team ten times and to the Second Team twice.
