Do you have any hockey fans in your house? We do, hubby is a huge hockey fan and although he proudly supports our home team in Ottawa, he does keep up with everything hockey related. I wanted to get him something for Christmas this year that had to do with hockey, something sentimental and that can come from all of us. There is so much memorabilia available with Canadian hockey team logos stamped on it. It can be hard to find that perfect, unique gift besides your typical hockey hat and mitts set that are oh so popular every year.

This year we have decided to gift him with the 2011 $25  Fine Silver Wayne & Walter Gretzky Hologram Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. This is a unique, limited edition coin which celebrates the Great One in action with his father, Walter Gretzky as a cameo. The coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clam shell case lined with flock and protected by a customized sleeve with Wayne and Walter's authentic signatures. With each coin sold, a portion of the proceeds go to the Wayne Gretzky Foundation.



This coin not only represents Canadian hockey but also celebrates all that is Wayne Gretzky. Growing up, Gretzky practiced for hours on end spending as much time as he could skating, shooting and stick-handling, perfecting his hockey playing. His father built him his first back yard skating rink when he was just six years old. Walter gave his son more than just an ice rink to play on. He gave him inspiration and fueled a passion. Wayne Gretzky became what he is today because of love and support from his father.

Today, Wayne is deeply involved with numerous charitable organizations and works toward bringing hockey to physically challenged and disadvantaged children. His father, as supportive as ever, nurturing a passion which would make any son feel grateful and proud.

What I like about this coin is it's unique artistic beauty, I love the detail put into it. It's not something everybody else has and it's something to look back on over the years and remember. Something to pass down to our own son one day who at the young age of three has already begun to show his interest in hockey. It's more than just a coin. It's a memory in the making.

The 2011 $25 Fine Silver Hologram Coin featuring Wayne and Walter Gretzky can be purchased on The Royal Canadian Mint website but remember, there are only a limited number of coins available!

Win it!
