The reverse of the Passion to Play Ottawa Senators coin includes the image of children playing street hockey with roller blades and a street puck.

Founded in Ottawa in the 1908, the Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of the nation. It originally formed to provide the country with independent control over its coinage, and required expansion in the 1980s to keep up with demand. A second facility was built at that time in Winnipeg.
