Designed by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin, your coin’s reverse is an artistic tribute to Canada’s most famous aircraft, the Avro CF-105 Arrow. The gold-plated supersonic interceptor jet appears to be too fast and too powerful to be contained on the reverse, where a unique perspective emphasizes its sleek profile. On the runway, the maple leaf-shaped shadow pays homage to the innovators who designed and built the iconic Arrow, which was, and remains, the pride of Canada. The obverse features a maple leaf pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Was commissioned to develop a supersonic interceptor that would bolster North America’s air defences during the Cold War. Production began at the company’s facilities in the town of Malton, Ontario, and on October 4, 1957, the first Arrow, RL-201, was unveiled to great fanfare. After a successful first flight on March 25, 1958, four more prototypes were completed, plus one Arrow Mk. The twin-engine, delta-winged Arrow was hailed as a technological triumph; it was the first production aircraft to adopt a fly-by-wire flight control system, while the newly developed Iroquois PS-13 turbojet engine would have allowed it to fly at a speed exceeding Mach 2twice the speed of sound. But the program was cancelled on February 20, 1959. All prototypes, models, plans and equipment were ordered destroyed, though some surviving pieces can be found in Canadian museums. Many of the Canadian engineers who worked on the Arrow project went on to play important roles in other aviation projects and in the American space program. What’s the largest surviving piece of the Avro Arrow? The nose section of RL-206, which was 98 percent complete when work stopped on the Arrow program. When the Arrows were disassembled in 1959, this section found its way to the Institute of Aviation Medicine in Toronto, where it was used as a pressure chamber. In 1965, it was donated to the National Aeronautical Collection, which became the National Aviation Museum in 1982 and is now the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa, Ontario, where the nose section is currently on display. Several more Arrow artifacts have resurfaced in the last few years, including several models that have been recovered from the bottom of Lake Ontario.

Planes were still a rare sight in the sky when the world was plunged into war in 1914. The flying machines seemed to have little use, but the ever-evolving tactics of war quickly propelled them from rickety canvas-over-wood reconnaissance planes to full-fledged aerial combat weapons that engaged in spectacular dogfights. This exciting new coin series features three of the most successful Allied fighter planes of the First World War, beginning with the British-built Royal Aircraft Factory S. Introduced in 1917, this biplane was on the front lines of innovation. It could fly up to 222 km/h and remain airborne for more than two hours, two factors that enabled the Allies to regain and maintain air superiority until the wars end in 1918. Although Canada did not have its own air force, thousands of Canadians enlisted as aircrew personnel in the United Kingdoms Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) or the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), with some of them undoubtedly taking to the air in Royal Aircraft Factory S.

If the First World War introduced the concept of aerial combat, then the Second World War cemented its status as one of the defining elements of modern warfare. Rapid advancement in aircraft technology produced the aluminum-clad bombers, cargo planes and jet-powered aircraft that gradually replaced the wooden-framed and fabric-clad biplanes of the Great War. Aircraft carriers allowed planes to extend their reach farther than ever before, while a new technologyradarbolstered defensive and offensive strategies in the skies. The Aircraft of the Second World War series salutes three of the most iconic aircraft flown between 1939 and 1945. Whether used to defend the homeland, in combat overseas or as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan here in Canada, these aircraft are remembered as important symbols of Canadian valour and sacrifice.
