Thirty-Five Years

One of my numismatic acquisitions on our recent vacation was this commemorative coin honoring the 25th anniversary of Canada’s hockey triumph over the USSR.

It’s hard this far south in the US to find Canadian coins. This item has been a special target of mine because of the hockey theme.

    You can use the Canadian coins in newspaper machines. At least the News and Free Press ones.
