Hockey is the national sport of Canada, so it is no surprise that the Royal Canadian Mint has dedicated an entire coin series to the sport. The Ottawa Senators are one of the youngest teams in the Canadian NHL. Founded in just 1990, the team didnt join the league until 1992. Today you can purchase the 2017 Proof Canadian Passion to Play: Ottawa Senators 1/2 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals.
The coins in this listing ship in a maroon clamshell display box, which is common for special releases from the Royal Canadian Mint. In addition to the clamshell, a shipper box with full-color artwork comes with the coins.
All uses of the NHL logo and the NHL Shield are trademarked by the National Hockey League. These logos are property of the league and its franchises.
The obverse face of these coins bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief with her pearl necklace and earrings.
On the reverse side of the coin, you will see the image of children playing street hockey. The kids are geared up in rollerblades, and they are playing with a street puck. The colors in the background are an indication that fall and hockey season are coming up. You will also see the Ottawa Senators logo in the upper-right portion of the coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in Ottawa in 1908. This mint is the official sovereign mint of the country. The mint was originally established to provide Canada with independent control over its coinage. In the 1980s, expansion was required to keep up with the demand placed on these coins. At this time, a facility was built in Winnipeg to help meet demand.
