Canadiens Loonie in circulation, obtained at Metro Grocery Stores or in your change.

For those that didn't know, I managed to get one this aft.

MONTREAL – Now more than ever, wherever you go, the Canadiens will be right there with you.

Canadiens President Pierre Boivin, together with Ian Bennett, president of the Royal Canadian Mint, unveiled a commemorative $1 Canadiens coin. It’s a first in North American professional sports; no other team has had its logo grace such any coin.

“We are touched that the Royal Canadian Mint was willing to pay tribute to the Canadiens’ history with this coin,” said Boivin. “The Canadiens will now truly be at all four corners of the country.”

Starting on Wednesday March 11, Canadiens fans and coin collectors alike will be able to collect the special Centennial circulation coin by looking in their change or by visiting Metro grocery stores across Quebec where this keepsake is being exclusively distributed.

The Royal Canadian Mint will also unveil a limited-edition Montreal Canadiens Centennial proof silver dollar enhanced with touches of selective gold plating.

how many are in circulation?

I hope there's enough that we'll be able to see pissed off Leaf fans looking at their change for the rest of our lives

Was soooo happy when I got my coin on the way into the game. I also got one in my change when I got a drink at the concessions. Booyah.

As others have already posted, the loonies were handed out as we entered the game on Tuesday against the Oilers. My son and I each got one as well.

With paid attendance at 21,273, it cost the Habs over 21,000 dollars in free loonies.

Nice touch...
