2009 Canada $25 Cross Country Skiing Olympic Sterling Silver Hologram

Cross country skiing has been around for millennia. Prehistoric cave drawings in Russia show hunters gliding on skis. Skis were an essential form of transportation for the Swiss army during the 16th century. By 1767, the Norwegian army was holding official competitions and, in 1843, that same country held the first civilian cross country ski event.

A test of physical and mental endurance, cross country skiing was part of the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924. Men competed in 18- and 50-kilometre races and the women's Olympic sport event was added in 1952.

Highlights: This coin is a must-have collectible for sports fans! It captures the energy and speed of cross country skiing as the latest theme in this historic, 15-coin collection that wraps up at the end of 2009. Each coin features a captivating design struck in sterling silver alongside a selective hologram showcasing the official Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games logo.

Reverse: Two competitors race towards victory.
