2006 Canada $100 75th Game of Hockey 14K Gold Coin

Join the excitement on the ice as Canada's royal military college of Canada and the United States military academy lace up their skates for the 75th game in the ongoing competition between their two institutions.

The brainchild of General Douglas MacArthur, the first game was played in 1923 as a way to foster good will between two national military schools ----- what better way to build team spirit among North America's future military leaders!

This friendly game between gentlemen was celebrated with tea dances and church parades, but once the men were on the ice, spirits quickly intensified. It was a hard fought game that the royal military college of Canada won by a score of 3-0. local reporters billed it as the best hockey in the year and both teams eagerly awaited their rematch the following year.

In 2006, the 75th face off in this ongoing competition will be played out in Canada----a milestone that makes this ongoing competition the longest international hockey series in the world. Struck in 14-karat gold with a laser-enhanced design, it captures all the passion that's inspired by national pride.
