Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The Royal Canadian Mint presents a limited edition proof silver dollar in recognition of the 75th Anniversary of the declaration Second World War. This minutely-detailed coin designed by Canadian artist Silvia Decota depicts three women constructing an Avro 683 Lancaster X, garbed in the work wear typical of the era around the Second World War; this conflict grew to such dire proportions that the urgent mobilization of the entire country was necessary, therefore requiring women—then relegated to the realm of domesticity—to begin working in war industries. This included the building of ships, aircraft, vehicles and weaponry, as well as in munitions plants and on farms. They could also be found driving trucks and providing logistical support for soldiers, among many other previously male-oriented roles. This coin, crafted in two-thirds of an ounce of 99.99% fine silver, pays tribute to the efforts and sacrifices of both the lives lost in the war, and the efforts of those left behind on the home front. With a limited mintage of 7,500, this limited-edition silver dollar would make a striking and unique addition to any collection of fine silver coins.
