Description

This pure silver 2013 $5 coin features a stylized star and maple leaf, layered with the FSSF (First Special Service Force) shoulder patch that united Canada and the U.S. in joint missions. This coin is limited to a mintage of 20,000 coins worldwide. GST/HST exempt.

 

The Design:

The patch features the names of both nations. Below the central image is an arrowhead shape, interpreted to symbolize the warrior spirit of the FSSF. The reverse also features the name "FIRST SPECIAL SERVICE FORCE" and "PREMIÈRE FORCE DE SERVICE SPÉCIAL," the date "2013" and the face value of "5 DOLLARS." 

 

The Devil's Brigade:

During World War II, Canada joined forces with the United States to create the First Special Service Force, which marks the first and only time both nations would be seamlessly combined in training, equipment and uniform. Although it was only operational for two years, this elite combat unit demonstrated the power of united national forces against a common foe, and took on the name “The Devil’s Brigade”. This unit  was the forerunner to distinguished Canadian and U.S. units including Canada's Joint-Task-Force 2 and the United States' Navy Seals, Delta Force and Green Berets.
