With the Paralympic Games just around the corner, Canada's Chicken Farmers have pitched a special version of the 2016 Lucky Loonies for Canada's national swim team. The new coins will not only give the athletes a token of luck to take with them to Rio, but the Loonies will also represent that partnership between farmers and Paralympians.
The new version of the 2016 Lucky Loonie is designed to serve as a good luck gesture from farmers to the athletes competing in Rio. The coin itself will be specially-minted by the Royal Canadian Mint and will come with an encouraging message from Canada's Chicken Farmers. The farmers currently serve as the official protein sponsor of swimming in Canada and the new coin helps to solidify the relationship between the organization and the Paralympians.
