Designed in 1932 mainly for civil use, the Canadian-built Fairchild 71C was a seven-seat utility monoplane developed from the famous Fairchild FC-2.
This early plane was mainly used for freight & photographic surveys as well as technical training during WWII. The historic design is captured on this coin in fine detail with a gilded cameo of James A. Richardson, the director of Fairchild ASLC displayed above. The Fairchild 71C model featured folding wings and an undercarriage that could be quickly changed over from wheels to skis or floats.
