This year is the th anniversary of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, the precursor to Hockey Canada, and the Royal Canadian Mint has released a striking coin commemorating the occasion. Depicting the outline of a hockey player inside a maple leaf, each half of which has been enamelled in a different colour, the design is simple but very appealing. Just 7, of these will be minted and they ship from 11 November, although they are limited to one per household. In addition to a coin commemorating the anniversary of the sport as a whole, the RCM has also released the edition of coins celebrating the seven Canadian teams that participate in the National Hockey League. Each reverse-proof, 34mm, half-ounce silver coin is struck and coloured with the logo of the team in question.
