This 2015 $10 fine silver coin is one of seven in a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint that celebrates the Canadian franchises of the National Hockey League (NHL). Hockey's beloved status in Canada makes it "our game."

The reverse of the coin pays homage to the Toronto Maple Leafs, with their logo tucked neatly to the left side of the coin, while a silhouette of an advancing hockey player speeding across the ice towards the viewer is seen on the right. The colours of the Toronto Maple Leafs are brought to life through the use of advanced "sheer effect" colourization that makes the colours flash fantastically under the light. This coin boasts a reverse-proof finish, with text indicating the face value of "10 DOLLARS", the country "CANADA" and the date "2015" circling the rim.

The coin is struck in a half-ounce of 99.99% fine silver, and boasts an unusually low mintage of only 5,000 pieces. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The Toronto Maple Leafs:

The franchise was founded in 1917, and in 1919, the NHL transferred the franchise to new owners who dubbed the team the Toronto St. Patricks. The franchise was sold again in 1926, and the name was changed again, to the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club. The Maple Leafs have won thirteen Stanley Cup championships, second only to the twenty-four championships of their primary rival, the Montreal Canadiens. Much to the despair of their large and enthusiastic fanbase, they won their last championship in 1967. The Leafs are the most valuable franchise in the NHL. Notable Hockey Hall of Famers amongst the Leafs are Johnny Bower, Frank Mahovlich, and Darryl Sittler.
