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.

Love 40mm coins!


I am happy to buy these three coins because of their historical value and the beauty of the individual coins. They have a diameter of 40mm. Only a 2mm difference from the typical 38mm coins the RCM produces, but that makes a big difference. The image on the reverse fills the whole face of the coin, without a border like many coins have. These coins must be beautiful. I can't wait to see these coins in hand! When I see listings for 40mm coins I always try to add them to my collection. In recent years this has included the five coin series "Legacy of the Canadian Nickel" and the three "Untamed Canada" animal coins. Since both the 38mm and 40mm coins have one ounce of silver, I don't know why more RCM coins are not produced in a 40mm size. Mind you, both the "Kaleidoscope" and "En Plein Air" series (3 coins each) were produced from one ounce of silver with a 60mm diameter, so the RCM is doing better regarding the diameter of the coins they produce. Thanks. ~Aberdeen p.s. Jim from Yarmouth NS said "I flew Canso 9816 , sinking U-715". Thank you very much, Jim! Your courage in facing the danger of that work to keep us all free is very much appreciated by me and all Canadians today!




Great set beautiful quality


I purchased the 2016 set and the 2017 is just as good.






They are beautiful. The picture on the website does not do them justice. I examined the coins under a loop and they are excellent. Can't wait for the next set-----you know they are coming.

A Military History Advisor should have been consulted.


1. There appears to be an error on the Avro Anson coin. The larger of the two sea vessels appears, from its wake, to be travelling backward. 2. The Canso coin. From the tower of the sub, it appears that the sailor is wearing the German crew cap. If so, why is he waving? 3. On the Hurricane coin, the aircraft in relief has a tail section out of alignment with the wing section.



Nice but ....


I don't know who chose these aircraft but how they could not include the Spitfire is beyond me. The Hurricane and Spitfire basically saved Britain. Other notable choices that should have been included are the Mosquito and the Lancaster bomber.

Great Subscription


I just received the first coin in this series and am very impressed. Great detail, great colour and a great way to pay tribute to those that flew them.
