Canada, 25 cents (ice hockey), 2007

December 20, 2011

I found some foreign coins at the bank, so I now have some Coin of the Day material.

Canada, 25 cents (ice hockey), 2007 (KM #683)


Between 2007 and 2010, the Canadian Mint released 16 quarters as part of a series building hype for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. As it turns out, the gold medal finalist game for ice hockey that year was a real corker of a match… the USA versus Canada. The Canadians fought hard, and well earned their gold medal on home ice for their favorite sport!

As for the value of this coin, the Canadian dollar is just under par with the US dollar right now, so this coin is worth USD $0.241.
