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.
