Theme

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 99.99% pure silver coin, which salutes the innovators whose ideas provided the blueprint for the Arrow’s achievements.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Stephen Quick, your 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.
