*Nifty Trick - Put two Stanley Cup Statuette Coins back-to-back for a complete, miniature version of Lord Stanley's Cup!

In 1892, the Governor General of Canada, Lord Stanley, donated a silver bowl for the purpose of fostering a competitive spirit between Canada’s amateur hockey teams. From this expression of support sprung a rich legacy, as the Stanley Cup evolved into one of the most revered trophy in professional sports - and a celebrated icon in Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup’s origins, with a one-of-a-kind shaped coin that pays tribute to hockey’s ultimate prize.

Who has won the most Stanley Cups? The Montreal Canadiens, of course!
The Canadiens are easily one of the most successful and storied professional hockey teams of all time. Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, they are members of the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The club is officially known as Le Club de Hockey Canadien. In English, the team's main nickname is the Habs (from "Les Habitants"). The French spelling Canadiens is always used in English (never "Canadians").

Founded in 1909, eight years before the founding of the NHL, the Canadiens are the oldest continuously-operating professional ice hockey team and the only continuously-operating club to predate the league. They are considered one of the "Original Six" teams. The team's championship season in 1992-93 still marks the last time that a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup.

The Canadiens have won 24 Stanley Cups (including their first in 1916, before the NHL existed), more than any other team. On a percentage basis, as of 2008, the franchise has won 26% of all Stanley Cup championships contested after the Challenge Cup era, making it one of the most successful professional sports teams of the traditional four major sports of Canada and the United States.

The original Montreal Canadiens Logo The Canadiens currently play their home games at the Bell Centre (named the Molson Centre until 2003). The team formerly played at the famous Montreal Forum. The Forum was considered a veritable shrine to hockey fans everywhere, and housed the team for seven decades and all but their first two Stanley Cup championships. Forty-two NHL Hall of Famers played for the Habs (more than for any other team), including Jacques Plante, Maurice "Rocket" Richard, Georges Vezina, Patrick Roy and Guy Lafleur.

Obverse
The design presents a reduced-scale replica statuette 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.
