The Grey Cup® game, the championship of Canadian professional football, is the country’s single largest annual sporting event, attended by thousands and watched by millions every year. We are proud to commemorate the truly Canadian icon that is the Grey Cup with a limited edition proof silver dollar.
The coin celebrates the 100th Grey Cup game that was played in Toronto in 2012 and is an opportunity to own a Proof Silver dollar commemorating an event that only happens once every 100 years. The coin features a depiction of the one of the greatest moments for the Grey Cup Champions - a close up of the actual inscription that appears on the Cup itself.
Designed by Bensimon Byrne, the coin features a stylised image of the Grey Cup Trophy mounted on its large base, set against a detail from the engraved text on the face of the Grey Cup. Embossed against this background is the number “100” in celebration of the 100th Grey Cup Game, the words “Grey Cup/Coupe Grey,” the face value, “Canada Dollar” and the year, “2012.”
The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with black flock and protected by a custom beauty box.
