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 technology—radar—bolstered 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.

About the First Coin Design:

Designed by Canadian artist David A. Oram, the first coin in your subscription features an engraved depiction of two Hawker Hurricanes patrolling the skies over Great Britain during the Battle of Britain, circa 1940. The design features an outstanding amount of detail, all painstakingly engraved and enhanced with the use of multiple finishes. In the background, a part in the cloud cover reveals the Thames Estuary below, where the fuel tanks and ships of a vital British shipping port are to be defended from airborne attacks by the German Luftwaffe. The selectively coloured Hurricane in the foreground bears the reporting marks of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) No. 1 Squadron, along with the identifier YO-A and the serial number P3069 that are associated with the aircraft flown by Squadron Leader Ernest Archibald McNab. This Hurricane's combat experience is evident in the markings and faded paint on its fuselage and wings, but does little to diminish the aircraft's overall colourful appearance—from its grey-green camouflage to the multi-coloured roundels on the wings and fuselage, along with the red, white and blue tail flash. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
