The Toronto Maple Leafs net Royal Canadian Mint one-dollar circulation coin in honour of their 100th anniversary

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Oct. 7, 2017 /CNW/ - As the legendary Toronto Maple Leafs take to the ice for the first home game of the 2017-2018 season, the Royal Canadian Mint is joining Leafs fans across Canada in celebrating their beloved team's 100th anniversary with a special one-dollar circulation coin.  This new coin was unveiled today outside the Air Canada Centre, on Maple Leaf Square, by Toronto Maple Leafs alumnus Wendel Clark and Royal Canadian Mint President and CEO Sandra Hanington.

"For the last 100 years, the Toronto Maple Leafs have delighted hockey fans across Canada and become a pillar of our country's sports heritage," said the Honourable Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance.  "By honouring 100 years of the Maple Leafs, the Royal Canadian Mint has created a keepsake which is as enduring as Canada's pride in this truly legendary hockey team. As a resident and Member of Parliament for Toronto, I couldn't be more proud of this legacy - Go Leafs Go!"

"The Mint is proud to recognize the tremendous legacy of the Toronto Maple Leafs with a special one-dollar circulation coin celebrating their 100th anniversary," said Sandra Hanington, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "Leafs fans across the country can now look forward to finding one of these special coins in their change and collecting it as a piece of Canada's glorious hockey history."

"The Toronto Maple Leafs are honoured to have the Royal Canadian Mint recognize our 100th anniversary with this commemorative one-dollar coin," said Toronto Maple Leafs President and Alternate Governor Brendan Shanahan. "We've been fortunate to be able to celebrate this milestone together with our fans with so many unique events and now; this commemorative coin."

Designed by Canadian artist Steven Rosati, the reverse of this new one-dollar circulation coin depicts the emblematic Maple Leafs logo flanked by classic wood and modern composite hockey sticks which, along with the dates 1917 and 2017, symbolize the team's 100-year history.  A puck at the top of the design completes the look of this unforgettable hockey-themed coin, of which five million examples are now starting to circulate.

Hockey fans across Canada can start looking for this coin in their change, attend coin exchanges at the Mint's Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver boutiques, or obtain limited quantities through an online coin exchange at www.mint.ca/leafs100 (limited to Canada only). 

The Royal Canadian Mint is adding to this historic celebration with a number of collector products. The first is a special wrap roll of 25 one-dollar circulation coins featuring the official logo of the 100th anniversary of the Maple Leafs. As well, Steven Rosati has designed a pair of 99.99% pure silver collectibles: a ¼ oz. coin featuring the Leafs anniversary logo with the number "100" selectively enhanced in the team's official shade of blue, and a 1 oz. fine silver coin illustrating a modern-era and old-time player in action with a selectively coloured Maple Leafs logo. 

These products can be ordered as of today by contacting the Royal Canadian Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or online at www.mint.ca/leafsnation. The coin is also available at the Royal Canadian Mint's boutiques in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver, as well as through the Mint's global network of dealers and distributors, including participating Canada Post outlets.
