Football in Canada
The first ever match of football on Canadian soil was played at the University of Toronto. Although this was only an exhibition game, soon afterward it resulted in the opening of a football club. The rules of the game weren’t very clear in the beginning, but eventually, they were set up based on rugby. Later on, thanks to the Burnside rules introduced in 1903, Canadian football was transformed into a gridiron-styled game and remained the same to date. The Canadian Football League, formed in 1958, has remained popular to today. The game of football in Canada is played at the collegiate, high-school, junior, Bantam and other levels, and the Canadian Football League remains one of the strongest sports brands in the country.
A Unique-Shaped Coin
The Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning curved coin with the shape of a football reveals a convex-shaped obverse. The coin features a detailed depiction of a football with all the parts of it engraved and curved to resemble the actual ball. The texture with the leather panels, laces and “night stripes” really make the feeling of a ball on the coin come alive. The talented Royal Canadian Mint engravers were responsible for the reverse, designing a Mint-first, curved coin. Susanna Blunt designed the obverse with the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse also shows the engraved face value of 200 dollars and the year 2017. On the obverse, the word “CANADA”, “ ELIZABETH II” and “DG REGINA” can be seen.
