2017 Canada 1 oz Silver $20 Aircraft of WWII Consolidated Canso

History remembers the Hawker Hurricane as one of the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War and as a great defender of Great Britain during the legendary Battle of Britain (1940).

This is the final coin in a three-coin series featuring aircraft flown at home or abroad during the Second World War (1939-1945). This fine Silver coin pays tribute to the amphibious Consolidated Canso in action over the North Sea, while selective color re-creates the colors and markings of RCAF No. 162 Squadron.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Comes in a mint-issued maroon clamshell box with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Limited mintage of only 7,500 coins.
  • Obverse: The effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
  • Reverse: Depicts a recreation of RCAF No. 162 Squadron with white-gray fuselage, as well as the blue and green camouflage pattern along the upper wing and tail surfaces. The reporting marks “T” and “9816” are associated with a Canadian Canso piloted by Flt. Lt. R.E. McBride who, on June 3, 1944, dropped four depth charges to destroy U-477 (engraved in the background) in the waters of the North Sea, off the coast of Norway.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
