Why add this GEM Proof 2017 Canada $25 1 oz. Proof Silver Football-Shaped Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint to your collection?
While the shape of the American football has evolved over the years due to the materials used, the manufacturing process, and even aesthetics, it is today the most iconic symbols of American sports. In 2017, to honor this important symbol, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) has struck a 1 oz. silver coin in the shape of an American football! This is the first football-shaped coin in the world! Composed of .9999 fine silver, this coin is legal tender under the Canadian government for $25. This coin was minted in partnership with ModernCoinMart (MCM), who is the exclusive North American distributor for this historic release.
What is the design of this 1 oz. Silver Football-shaped coin?
This stunning coin bears the design of a "pigskin" on its reverse. The bands at either end, the stitching along the top, the texture of the leather, and most importantly, the shape of the coin serve as accurate representations of an American football. The inscriptions "25 DOLLARS" and "2017" are present on this design.
The obverse design depicts Susanna Blunt's effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in the center of the football. The texture of the leather is still present around her, along with the inscriptions "CANADA" and "ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA."

This coin will come to you, just like it came to us from the RCM. It will be housed in a maroon clamshell with a black beauty box, to help store, protect, and even display your coin. Best of all, this coin will be held in a plastic capsule to provide additional protection and to keep your coin in its pristine, GEM Proof condition!
