A must-have keepsake for history buffs and sailors
Features the Canadian Navy’s motto in morse code
A brilliant and prestigious addition to any collection
This Proof Silver Dollar is crafted with all the prestige of one of the Mint’s most enduring collector series. Its poignant centennial theme will inspire history buffs and military enthusiasts alike.
The reverse side of this unique commemorative coin features HMCS Sackville – this legendary ship is the last surviving corvette and a living memorial to the Canadian Navy. Its pennant number (K-181) is clearly visible on its hull, and its motto (Ready Aye Ready/Prêt Oui Prêt) in morse code surrounds the design.
By ltreed from North Vancouver, BC on 3/14/2010 I have a supporter of the Canadian Forces and I think it is great to honour the 100th anniversary of the Navy this way. The coin is a good size and looks great in the proof finish. For me this coin has a Special meaning because I have been on the ship pictured on the coin.
"It is a celebration"
By Militant Mind from North Vancouver, BC on 5/11/2010 This coin is a celebration of the contribution that my family and friends have given Canada for their service in the Navy. I had an Uncle who was on the HMSC Ottawa when it was torpedoed in WW2. He survived, the man who replaced him on watch 5 minutes earlier did not. Fortunes of war. This is for him and the countless others who have given so much to make this country as great as it is today. Well done RCM.
"Awesome, This is for my dad (passed away)"
By hockeycanada from Montreal, QC Canada on 5/12/2010 This is in memory of my dad and all that risked their lives, so we can live free. My dad was in the navy and was a wireless operator, couldn't be more perfect. I didn't even realize the morse code was on it, until I got it and it just topped it off... amazing. Thanks to all the armed forces.
