Royal Canadian Mint Celebrates NHL\'s Return

WINNIPEG, OCTOBER 9, 2011 —
After a 15-year absence, the NHL® is returning to the City of Winnipeg and the Royal Canadian Mint is thrilled to celebrate this occasion by producing two special commemorative coins: a 2011-2012 Winnipeg Jets™ 50-cent commemorative coin and a 2011-2012 Winnipeg Jets™ $20 commemorative pure silver coin. The 50-cent coin was unveiled today at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Royal Canadian Mint Chair of the Board James B. Love and Winnipeg Jets owner Mark Chipman.

"The Mint is devoted to producing coins which celebrate Canada's history, culture and values," said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "Many of Canada's most notable sporting moments have featured hockey and we are proud to commemorate yet another, this time in Winnipeg, the home of our high-speed, state-of-the-art production facility where the Winnipeg Jets 50-cent coin was produced. Mint employees wish the Winnipeg Jets a remarkable 2011-2012 season."

"We are exceptionally honored that the Royal Canadian Mint was willing to pay tribute to the return of the Winnipeg Jets with a 50-cent commemorative coin and a $20 commemorative pure silver coin," said Mark Chipman, Chairman and Governor of True North Sports & Entertainment. "The Winnipeg Jets have always held a special place in the hearts of hockey fans across Canada and thanks to the Royal Canadian Mint, these fans can now own a piece of Jets history by celebrating the inaugural season with these commemorative coins."

Hockey fans across Canada can order both commemorative coins, featuring the new logo of the Winnipeg Jets and the date 2011-2012 to celebrate their inaugural season, by visiting the mint's website at www.mint.ca.  The 50-cent coin, produced at the Mint's Winnipeg facility with nickel-plated steel, retails for $14.95 and is available for online purchase now, as well as at the Mint's boutiques in Ottawa and Winnipeg while quantities last. The 99.99% pure silver $20 coin has a limited mintage of 15,000 and retails for $94.95. While customers can pre-order the $20 coin online immediately, delivery will begin in early November. Look for these coins through the Mint's global network of dealers and distributors including participating Canada Post outlets, who will soon be selling these products.
