2022 Coloured 50th Anniversary of the Summit Series $2 Special Wrap Roll of 25pcs

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 the colour-enhanced 2022 commemorative $2 circulation coins that form each 50th Anniversary of the Summit Series Colourized Special Wrap Roll.

After Team Canada rallied to recover from a 1-3-1 series deficit, an estimated 15 out of 22 million Canadians tuned in to the eighth and final game, which was broadcast live into homes, schools and workplaces across the country.

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, which is highlighted in red on the colourized coin, the hockey players are accompanied by the words “THE SERIES LA SÉRIE” and “50 YEARS ANS”. On the outer ring, the coaches’ initials and the players’ jersey numbers surround the inner core to represent the spirit of Team Canada. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Special Features:
• The Summit Series, 50 Years Later! Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic hockey series that captivated this nation, igniting passions and uniting Canadians around their national team. The 1972 Summit Series was a defining moment for Canadians, and the 2022 $2 commemorative circulation coin proudly honours Canada’s Summit Series team.
• All wrapped up! Each Colourized Special Wrap Roll contains 25 50th Anniversary of the Summit Series $2 coins with selective colour. The coins come wrapped together in a custom paper wrap that complements the coin design.
• Uncirculated coins! None of these coins have been circulated - they all have a newly minted quality.
• Team colour! All 25 coins that form each Colourized Special Wrap Roll feature the same red accents on the reverse: on the jersey, gloves and socks worn by the Canadian team in 1972; and on the team jersey’s maple leaf, which rises up in the background.
