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 2022 commemorative $2 circulation coins that form each Colourized Special Wrap Roll. All 25 coins feature the same colour accents on the reverse: red on the Team Canada 1972 Summit Series uniform; and red on the jersey’s iconic maple leaf, which appears in the background.
- 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. Your coins come wrapped together in a custom paper wrap that complements the coin design.
- 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.
- Uncirculated coins! None of these coins have been circulated—they all have a newly minted quality.
- Limited supply! Only 15,000 rolls are available.
