100 YEARS OF AMATEUR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION IN CANADA CELEBRATED
This year is the 100th 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 7,500 of these will be minted and they ship from 11 November, although they are limited to one per household. With hockey being so popular in Canada, we’d expect this to sell well.

THE SERIES OF SEVEN TEAM COINS
In addition to a coin commemorating the anniversary of the sport as a whole, the RCM has also released the 2015 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. The reverse as usual, carries the mugshot of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
The mint is claiming first use of a new colourisation techniques called “Sheer Effect”, which is supposed to make the coin glitter under light. Just 5,000 of each will be minted and they’re available now, although only for US and Canadian buyers.
