With this fine silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates Canada's role in the Battle of Britain, which would prove to be one of the turning points of the Second World War. This collectable coin pays tribute to Canada's role in the Battle of Britain with its depiction of a dogfight in the skies above Dover. 

By the summer of 1940, much of continental Europe was occupied by Nazi Germany, which had turned its sights across the English Channel to Great Britain. Despite being outnumbered nearly 2 to 1, the Royal Air Force (RAF) utilized a network of radar stations and eliminated the possibility of any sneak attacks, which allowed for fighter squadrons of Hurricanes and Spitfires to scramble and intercept the enemy. On October 31, 1940, the Battle of Britain came to a close. Although the Luftwaffe would continue nighttime bombing raids until May 1941, it had suffered its first defeat by failing to disarm British defences during those pivotal three and a half months—all at the hands of the outnumbered yet resourceful Allied pilots.

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