Fifty years after Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) completed its transcontinental railway, a new generation of sleek, efficient-looking locomotives was created. The Jubilee, featured on this fine silver collectable coin with a unique patterned edge, was aptly named for the CPR’s milestone anniversary. It captured peoples’ imaginations with its high-speed, semi-streamlined design and was soon being referred to as "The Flying Ace of the Steel Rails".

Introduced in 1936, this specially-designed 4-4-4* F2a type locomotive was capable of delivering sustained speeds over 160 kph. In fact, of the five engines that were built, number 3003 earned itself an enviable spot in the history books by clocking a speed of 181 kph (112.5 mph)—a record that remained unchallenged for 40 years!

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
