2022 $30 50th Anniversary of the Summit Series Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

It was a series that culminated in one of the most iconic moments in Canadian history—a “where were you when…?” moment that is cherished to this day—and those eight games ultimately changed the way hockey was played. Fifty years later, the intensity and excitement of the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) still live on in the collective memory of Canadians, along with the heart, grit and determination demonstrated by members of Team Canada. Their legacy and team spirit are proudly honoured on this 50TH anniversary commemorative coin, which features the stylized maple leaf that was the rallying symbol for an entire nation in September 1972.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel features two hockey players representing Team Canada in the 1972 Canada-U.S.S.R. Summit Series. Set against the team jersey’s iconic maple leaf, the hockey players are accompanied by the words “THE SERIES LA SÉRIE” and “50 YEARS ANS”. The coaches’ initials and the players’ jersey numbers surround the inner portion to represent the spirit of Team Canada, while the outside portion features a hockey net pattern. That hockey net pattern also appears as a background pattern on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
