Celebrate legendary goalies from the Original Six, who fearlessly played with minimal equipment. This coin series features Canadian-born goalies whose performances transformed them into hockey legends.
The goalies who played hockey during the Original Six era were some of the toughest athletes to compete in any sport. They played with little protective gear, no face/head protection. Unlike today's players, they were poorly paid and had little support from the team if they were injured.
Johnny Bower is the last goalie to win a Stanley Cup for the Toronto Maple Leafs, winning in 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1967. He shared the Vezina Trophy in 1965. In spite of his poor eyesight, he was a top goaltender and had a lifetime 2.51 GAA.
This coin is a wonderful gift for a hockey fan or collector of Canadian sportsmen who shaped our past. Don't get shutout, order yours today!
This coin ships in a brown RCM branded clam shell fitted in a graphic box.
