The legendary anti-submarine patrol bomber brought to life! Order today!

The flying boats of the Second World War were prized for their long-range flight capabilities. When an amphibious version of the Consolidated PBY Catalina seaplane was introduced in 1939, the more versatile PBY-5A caught the eye of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Re-designated as the Consolidated Canso and manufactured in Canada, the legendary anti-submarine patrol bomber is brought to life once more on this coin, where selective colour showcases the colours and markings of RCAF No. 162 Squadron.

The artistry and theme makes this a fantastic addition to your historical-, military- or aircraft-themed collection! Order today!

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist David A. Oram, your coin features an engraved depiction of the amphibious Consolidated Canso in action in the Atlantic theatre of war. Selective colour re-creates the camouflage colours and markings of RCAF No. 162 Squadron—specifically the white-grey fuselage, as well as the blue and green camouflage pattern along the upper wing and tail surfaces. The reporting marks “T” and “9816” are associated with a Canadian Canso piloted by Flt. Lt. R.E. McBride who, on June 3, 1944, dropped four depth charges to destroy U-477 (engraved in the background) in the waters of the North Sea, off the coast of Norway. The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T.H. Paget.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
