Developed by the Royal Canadian Mint’s team of R&D specialists, engineers and engravers, this fine silver coin has a unique shape that is instantly recognisable to hockey fans that have ever dreamed of hoisting the Stanley Cup at centre ice.
The reverse design presents a reduced-scale replica of the illustrious hockey trophy, all in a magnificent reverse proof finish. Detailed engraving recreates the ringed appearance of the Cup’s rounded barrel base, topped by the silver bowl that replicates the one donated by the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley. The finer details are enhanced by the application of different finishes that alter the way light reflects off the coin’s silver surface, thus infusing the innovative design with a life-like sense of depth and dimension. The obverse is flat, and features the commemorative dates “1892-2017”, the words “THE STANLEY CUP LA COUPE STANLEY”, the engraved face value “50 DOLLARS”, and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
