Description

Celebrate the legacy of the Avro CF-105 Arrow, an aviation marvel that was designed and built in Canada.  In the 1950s, this supersonic aircraft was heralded as the fastest and highest-flying interceptor. It was, and remains, an inspiring symbol of Canadian ingenuity and engineering excellence – especially on this one ounce fine silver coin, which salutes the innovators whose ideas provided the blueprint for the Arrow’s achievements. Mintage is limited to 10,000. HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Stephen Quick, the coin’s reverse is inspired by technical drawings of the Avro CF-105 Arrow. It features a mix of cross-sectional plan and three-view drawings, while the rendering of the Arrow in perspective shows the beauty of the aircraft’s design. To complete the blueprint look, laser-engraved grid lines fill the field on both the reverse and obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
