CANADA REMEMBERS THE SUMMIT HOCKEY SERIES

Canada 2 Dollars 2022 50th Anniversary of Summit Series ice hockey victoryCanada issued both color and non-colored circulating bi-metallic 2 Dollar coins in 2022 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their victory in the Summit Series ice hockey games against the Soviet Union held in September 1972.  Both nations considered themselves to be the best in the world.  The Summit Series was set to prove it. It was a series of eight games, the first four held in Canada and the last four in the Soviet Union. This was during the Cold War.  Both fans and players had intense feelings of nationalism.  Canada went into the series confident they would sweep the series, but it was not to be.  The Soviets were a lot better than they expected.  Going into the final game of the series the games were evenly split, with three wins and a tie.  The Soviets led in the number of goals scored.  An estimated 15 out of 22 million Canadians tuned into the final game.  It was a tense and dramatic game, with Team Canada overcoming a two-goal Soviet lead after two periods. Canada scored the final game winning goal with just 34 seconds left to play.  The coin depicts two Team Canada players in their distinctive red and white uniforms.  The coaches’ initials and the players’ jersey numbers surround the inner core.   The Royal Canadian Mint pledged that the net proceeds from the sale of the coins will be donated to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
