2017 Canada 50 Dollar 3-oz Silver Stanley Cup 125th Anniversary Reverse Proof
More than a century in the making: the 2017 $50 3-oz. Silver Stanley Cup 125th Anniversary Reverse Proof coin
March 3, 1875 is believed to be the date of the first-ever indoor hockey game, played in Montreal. Some elements of that original game, including the use of a puck and the length of the ice rink, are still part of the sport today, nearly 150 years later. The game continued to grow in popularity, until in 1892, the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley, donated a Silver bowl to serve as a championship trophy in a competition between Canada’s amateur hockey teams. Now, 125 years later, the Stanley Cup has become the emblem of ice hockey club supremacy, and is the championship trophy of the NHL.
Accordingly, no international coin collection or sports-enthusiast’s collection would be complete without the 2017 $50 Silver Stanley Cup 125th Anniversary Reverse Proof coin. This stunning replica of the Stanley Cup commemorates Canada’s most noteworthy sport with a one-of-a-kind coin that pays tribute to hockey’s fabled prize in fantastic three-dimensional fashion.
