The Original Lucky Loonie
In what is now a legendary tale, a Canadian icemaker embedded a Loonie at centre ice prior to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City to bring good luck to Canada's gold medal-winning men's and women's hockey teams.
In 2004, the Royal Canadian Mint created the first Lucky Loonie as a way of passing on its special magic to Canadian athletes as they departed for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.
The Mint is continuing this tradition as each member of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Teams will receive a 2014 Lucky Loonie upon their arrival in Sochi. Go Canada!
