Whether you’re able to be a part of the action or not, you can still take home something special to commemorate 100 years of The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth!

 

Centennial Collectables

The Royal Canadian Mint has come out with a line of commemorative coins, including a $500 Fine Gold Coin, $50 Fine Silver Coin and a Proof Fine Silver Dollar Coin.  Canada Post has also come out with special Centennial Stampede stamps.

 

This unique Calgary Stampede aluminum metal forged 2012 ticket would look great on any desk or mantle.  And you can choose from one of 4 poster plaques, including the 2012 one below.

 

Special Centennial Western Wear

Longview artist, Scott Hardy, created the limited edition Calgary Stampede Centennial belt buckle, which is crafted in sterling silver and gold.

 

Limited edition cowboy boots and hats are also available.  The boots are handcrafted by Alberta Boots, with full quill ostrich vamps, kangaroo shafts and full leather lining and soles.

The hats are made of beaver felt with a sterling silver hat buckle by the legendary Smithbilt Hats.
