With the Beijing Olympics underway, it’s the perfect time to get a Lucky Loonie now available in the Cannery Store! Produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, the Lucky Loonie is part of a series of 17 commemorative coins marking the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

What is the Lucky Loonie?
The legend of the Lucky Loonie began during the 2002 Winter Olympics when a Canadian icemaker buried a loonie under centre ice and both the men’s and women’s hockey teams subsequently won gold medals.
