To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Hockey League, the coin’s rectangular shape mimics the shape of a hockey net and provides a wider canvas for a sweeping action shot.
The “net camera” perspective immerses the viewer in the exhilarating moment, right at the heart of the action, as the puck gets past the goaltender. Put the biscuit in the basket, indeed!

Made by fans for the fans, the design steers clear of team-specific elements in favor of placing the focus squarely on the goal - it’s all about celebrating the excitement of the game that millions of North Americans love!

This coin makes the ultimate collectible for any hockey fan, a fantastic addition to any collection that features technological firsts or sports themes. Officially approved by the National Hockey League, each coin features the NHL’s special 100th anniversary mark in both official languages of Canada, French and English.

An Action-Packed Design!
Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, this rectangle shaped coin celebrates 100 years of National Hockey League history through a moment that conveys the raw excitement of the game. The unique “netcam” perspective places the viewer at the very heart of the fast-paced action on the ice, where several hockey players have rushed towards the goal crease. On the left, a player’s stick is still raised after taking the shot, which proves to be successful as the puck flies past the collapsing goaltender. GOOOAAAALL!!! From the net to the overhead scoreboard, highly detailed engraving brings the setting to life while capturing the mood, as two distant teammates raise their arms to celebrate the goal. Framing the vignette are the engraved commemorative dates 1917 – 2017 and the face value 20 DOLLARS, along with the NHL’s Centennial logo in both official languages of Canada, French and English.

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").

The original Montreal Canadiens Logo 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 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.
