Hockey is considered to be the favorite pastime and sport of Canadians of all ages. In fact, many of the pros who play in the National Hockey League are Canadian. This is why it makes sense that the Royal Canadian Mint will pay tribute to the sport that is so beloved in the country, with a 7-coin release that shines a spotlight on the NHL franchises that are based out of Canada. The 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Calgary Flames 1/2 oz Silver Coin is made from .9999 pure silver and is a great addition to the collection of investors and hockey fans alike.
Almost from the moment that they can walk, Canadian children are taught to skate on frozen ponds or indoor skating rinks. At the same time, most are handed a hockey stick so that they can learn to take part in the favorite sport of all Canadians.
The 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Calgary Flames 1/2 oz Silver Coin pays tribute to the Calgary Flames NHL franchise team that calls the city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada home. The franchise was first established in 1972, in the United States city of Atlanta. They were known as the Atlanta Flames. The team owners ultimately relocated the franchise to Calgary in 1980. The Flames have played in Calgary ever since.
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Calgary Flames 1/2 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Calgary Flames 1/2 oz Silver Coin features a scene that is quite familiar to Canadians. A group of children gathers together to play ice hockey on an outdoor skating rink that is just outside of an indoor rink. The logo for the Calgary Flames is shown in a white-background circle on the upper-right field of the design area.
Each of the 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Calgary Flames 1/2 oz Silver Coins is delivered to you inside of a maroon clamshell. This allows you to display your coin with ease. The coin is also delivered in a graphic, full-color shipper featuring the artwork shown on the reverse of the coin.
Ice hockey is the national sport of Canada, which makes these beautifully-designed coins a great choice in collectible for Canadians and those who appreciate the sport.
