Celebrating 35 Years of a "Trivial" Classic!

 

During the early 1980s, Trivial Pursuit became a popular game played by millions of people around the world. You can trace the birth of this international phenomenon directly to a December 15th, 1979 game of Scrabble played between Chris Haney and Scott Abbott, a pair of Canadian newspaper editors, who, after several beers and a few missing pieces, developed the concept of a trivia game. With the additions of an artist, two business partners and 32 investors, the first 1,100 copies of Trivial Pursuit hit Canadian stores just a few years later. The initial excitement caught the attention of game company Selchow and Righter, who licensed the game and put their advertising muscle behind the independent hit. The rest, as they say, is history!

 

In 2017, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the game's origin, the Royal Canadian Mint released this gorgeous Trivial Pursuit one ounce silver piedfort coin. The six wedges of victory (yellow, blue, green, pink, purple and orange) are all represented in beautifully vibrant enamel, forming a perfect game piece that's ready for the center circle! Surrounding it all is the original logo for the game, flanked by the years 1982 and 2017. Flip to the other side of this exceptionally thick piedfort and you'll find Susanna Blunt's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It all comes together beautifully in one full ounce of 99.99% silver for this $25 legal-tender Canadian coin!
