This 2010 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. Mintage is 50,000 coins. 


The Design:

The design features HMCS Sackville, the last surviving corvette and living memorial to the Royal Canadian Navy, its pennant number (K-181) clearly visible on its hull. The Canadian Navy's motto "Ready Aye Ready/Pret Oui Pret" in morse code surrounds the design.

HMCS Sackville:

It was the Second World War that really brought Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) to fruition. His/Her Majesty's Canadian Ship (HMCS) Sackville was one of the original 1939-40 Flower Class corvettes ordered for the RCN. She was built at Saint John (New Brunswick) and entered service in December 1941. The corvette class, with 122 built in Canada by war's end, had elevated the RCN to the third largest navy in the World.
