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.
Jacques Plante was one of the all time great goalies, leading his team to six Stanley Cups and winning seven Vezina Trophy's. He was the first NHL goalie to wear a mask while playing. He was also the first goalie to actively leave his crease and handle the puck, and had a lifetime 2.38 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.
