The oldest trophy in North American sports is being immortalized with a coin in Canada.
The Royal Canadian Mint is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Stanley Cup by producing a limited-edition commemorative quarter.
The coin, available in Canada only, features the Cup surrounded by two hockey players. On the left is a player who would have vied for the trophy in its earliest days. On the right is a player from today's era. Together, they represent the full span of a rich history that dates to March 18, 1892, when Lord Stanley, the governor general of Canada, introduced the idea of a championship trophy for the country's top amateur hockey team.
Although its appearance has changed throughout the years, the Stanley Cup remains an enduring symbol of Canada's beloved winter sport.
The Royal Canadian Mint previously produced a commemorative Canadian dollar in 1993 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Cup.
