Media Advisory - Royal Canadian Mint's Vancouver 2010 Commemorative
circulation coin program continues with 25-cent coin celebrating Men's Hockey
Gold at Salt Lake City in 2002

Mint boutique to host local coin exchange

OTTAWA, Oct. 1 /CNW Telbec/ -

    What:  The newest coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's Vancouver 2010
           collection is here! Canadians can now collect the 25-cent
           circulation coin celebrating Men's Hockey Gold at Salt Lake City
           in 2002, which was voted by fans as the top Canadian Olympic
           Winter Games Moment of all time. The thrill of Canada's victory at
           the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City is depicted on the coin
           by a hockey player with arms raised in victory against the
           backdrop of a maple leaf. The Mint is inviting the general public
           to visit its Sussex Drive boutique for a coin exchange, where some
           lucky visitors could find one of only three million coloured
           versions of the coin randomly distributed among the 22 million
           coins entering circulation. This marks the thirteenth circulation
           coin to be issued in celebration of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and
           Paralympic Winter Games.

           Saving this special coin is a unique way to build momentum for the
           Games and to generate luck for our athletes who will compete in
           this momentous event.
