Media Advisory - Royal Canadian Mint's Vancouver 2010 commemorative
circulation coin program continues with 25-cent coin celebrating Women's

Mint boutique to host local coin exchange

OTTAWA, Nov. 19 /CNW/ -

    
    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 Women's Hockey Gold at Salt Lake
              City in 2002, which was voted by fans as the second greatest
              Canadian Olympic Winter Games moment of all time.

              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 fourteenth 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.
