They played with passion and a rugged determination, carried by an enduring love for the game; in an era when there was little protective equipment, the hard-playing goaltenders of the Original Six™ hockey teams often risked injury as they fearlessly stood toe-to-toe against the prolific scorers of the 1950s and '60s. Each of these Canadian-born netminders brought their own style of play and made some of pro hockey's most memorable saves, all while setting the bar with impressive performance standards and helping to shape modern goaltending. Theirs is a lasting legacy on a sport that plays an important part in Canadian culture—a legacy that is celebrated with these fine silver coins.
A spectacular collectible and an extraordinary gift for fans who are truly passionate about their team, the game and its history! Order today!Special features:
