The Original Six™: Montreal Canadiens
Founded in 1909, the Montreal Canadiens are 24-time Stanley Cup champions and one of the oldest professional sports franchises in North America. Speed and offensive ability have always been the hallmarks of the Canadiens, who dominated during the Original Six era. After five consecutive Cups from 1956 to 1960, the team won four more times in the 1960s and six in the 1970s—10 championships in 15 seasons, and Yvan Cournoyer’s name appears on the Cup for each one.

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 as well as the Hockey Hall of Fame, each coin features a full color, on-ice shot of one of the greatest legends in NHL hockey history!

An Action-Packed Design!
The rectangular coin features an official licensed photograph from the Hockey Hall of Fame. Reproduced in full color, the action shot of Yvan Cournoyer was taken during his tenure as captain of the Montreal Canadiens (1975-1979). The image of the player from Drummondville, Quebec, is set within an engraved frame along with the color logo of the Montreal Canadiens and the player’s name.

The face value 25 DOLLARS is also engraved above the year 2019.

Yvan Cournoyer
Known for his hard slapshot and explosive speed, Yvan “the Roadrunner” Cournoyer blew past many of the top blueliners of the 1960s and 1970s on his way to becoming a 10-time Stanley Cup® champion with the Montreal Canadiens. Despite playing a limited role in his first few seasons with Montreal, Cournoyer went on to become one of the league’s premier forwards for much of his 16-year NHL career (1963-1979). The fast-skating right-winger scored 25 goals or more in 11 consecutive seasons, while his record-setting 15 goals in 17 playoff games earned him the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1973. Number 12 also led a star-filled team to consecutive Stanley Cup Championships during his four-year tenure as team captain (1975-1979) — an incredible stretch that also set NHL team records for most points and fewest losses. Inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982, Yvan Cournoyer is one of six NHL stars featured in this rectangular tribute to some of the legendary Canadian captains of an Original Six team.

Who has won the most Stanley Cups? The Montreal Canadiens, of course!
The original Montreal Canadiens Logo 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 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.
