Product Description

Exciting and extremely affordable - a true bargain, struck in the purest silver in the world! A hockey player lets loose a devastating slap shot, with a mintage limit and high face value - what's not to love?!

Sold out at the Mint!We have managed to acquire a limited quantity of this unique (and perhaps even revolutionary!) Hockey pure silver sports coin! Hockey is of course the national pastime of Canada, the winter sport that's an expression of Canadian competitive spirit, teamwork and pride. It’s an intense, exciting, and fast-paced game that rallies North Americans from coast to coast to coast, while boosting the brewing industry and allowing Canadians a rough-and-tumble outlet for all that pent up frustration. This brings to mind the old saw, "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out!" Designed by artist Greg Banning to mimic an NHL regulation hockey puck, the dynamic scene depicts a professional hockey player completing a devastating slap shot on goal! Now get off that Zamboni and fetch me a brewski!

What's all the fuss about, er, I mean, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways...

Wayne Gretzky, • The Mint has imposed a limit of 3 per collector (go ahead, ask yourself why)! But we have no limit at the present.
• High face value.
• Limited mintage - only 1 in 135 Canadians can ever own one! (And what does that leave for the rest of the world?!?!)
• Significant precious metal content.
• Minted in the purest silver available in the world - only the Royal Canadian Mint strikes four 9s fine silver coins!
• Every previous $20 Silver Commemorative release has sold out in mere days!
• Handsome specimen finish - unique to the RCM!
• Simple yet evocative artistry, an original work of art designed and engraved by practicing artist Greg Banning!
• Extraordinarily popular sports theme! Everybody loves competitive sports - and who doesn't love hockey? And this is far and away the least expensive pure silver sports coin you can purchase - anywhere in the world!

No-Exposure Proposal
Precious silver, a limited mintage, and a $20 denomination - here's a no-risk proposition if there ever was one! With economists becoming more and more anxious about the rising debt levels of Western nations, the timing couldn't be better. (Think about the incredibly huge federal budget deficit, all the states' financial problems, and the recent defaults in Europe.) The worry of fiat (paper) money ending up worthless also contributes to the ongoing rise in popularity of precious metals. Well, here's some relief - a precious metals coin with a high face value, too!

Consider just this one simple fact - we're selling this unique $20 Silver Commemorative coin at a price that's less than its on-the-table, in-your-hand value - the $20 denomination plus the $8.00 spot value of the silver (at current (as of this writing) $32+ per ounce silver) is essentially its price - and the quantity discounts make this an even better buy!

It Simply Adds Up
Do the math:   High Face Value + Significant Precious Metal Content + Sports Theme + Mintage Limit = No-Risk Winner

The Specimen Finish
This coin features the uniquely-Canadian "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (raised area or relief) includes both brilliant and mirrored surfaces, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, resulting in a contrasting, matte appearance. No other mint in the world employs the specimen finish.
