Here is one of three special packaging options for the 1997 commemorative silver dollar celebrating the 25th anniversary of Canada's Summit Series hockey win over Russia in 1972 -- this one is the "Gift Set".

The Gift Set included the commemorative silver dollar in brilliant uncirculated finish, a laser-engraved ("1972 - 1997") maple display stand (see the ‘Gift Set Box -- Back' image below) and a small print of André L'Archevêque's painting of the scene moments after Canada's Paul Henderson capped an amazing three goal third period comeback and scored the game winning goal (with just 34 seconds left to play!) in the eighth and final game of the Canada-Russia match to secure Canada's overall series victory 4-3-1.

I am not sure of the mintage of this set, though the numbered print appears to suggest over 30,000 Gift Sets were produced. In any case, the set appears in online auctions far less frequently vs. either the individual proof or uncirculated coins. I've seen the Gift Sets sell in the range of $25 to $45 (plus shipping); the set originally sold for $24.95.
