While the National Hockey League (NHL) might be a sporting league that is based out of the United States, it has deep playing roots across Canada. Each year, countless children grow up playing hockey with their friends on ponds and in arenas. The Royal Canadian Mint pays tribute to the NHL and its Canadian roots with the release of the Canadian Passion to Play series of silver coins. The 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Edmonton Oilers 1/2 oz Silver Coin, an NHL team that has roots stretching back to 1972. The coins are made from .9999 pure silver, and they are a great addition to the collection of those who appreciate the great sport of hockey.
Featured on the 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Edmonton Oilers 1/2 oz Silver Coin, the Edmonton Oilers are one of seven NHL franchises that call Canada home. The Edmonton Oilers franchise was established in 1972, as the Alberta Oilers in the World Hockey Association (WHA). The franchise ultimately became a part of the NHL as the Edmonton Oilers in 1979.
The obverse of all Passion to Play Series coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys image was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt, and is accompanied on this face by engravings of her name, the nation of issue, year of issue, and the phrase D.G. Regina.
On the reverse of each 2017 Proof Canadian Silver Passion to Play Edmonton Oilers Coin is the image of children playing a pick-up game of hockey on an outdoor rink, with one child playing with a puppy while two other pups run in the background behind the net. The entire image on this face is colorized, and includes the Edmonton Oilers logo in the upper-right field.
Each 2017 Proof Canadian Silver Passion to Play Edmonton Oilers coin ships in a maroon clamshell for brilliant display, and arrives inside of an Edmonton Oilers-themed, full-color graphic shipper. All uses of the NHL and NHL shield are trademarked by the National Hockey League, and the use of NHL and NHL team marks are property of the NHL and its franchises.
