A bronze performance

Royal Canadian Mint congratulates Canada's Paralympic Team with Lucky Loonies being sent to communities as thanks for supporting their medal-winning Paralympic athletes—including one to Rossland for Kimberley Joines’ bronze medal performance.

A 2014 Lucky Loonie will be displayed in a special commemorative frame this week to highlight the commitment to the athletes. This special keepsake will also serve as a reminder of the world-class performances delivered during the Paralympic Winter Games.

Joines won bronze in the women’s para-alpine sit skiing.

At the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games the Canadian Paralympic Team earned an exceptional 16 medals: seven gold, two silver and seven bronze.

"Canadians were riveted by the remarkable and inspirational performances of our Paralympic athletes during a thrilling nine days of competition," said Ian E. Bennett, president and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.
