Canada: 2021 $50 The Snowbirds: A Canadian Legacy 5 oz. Pure Silver Coin

Design: Your coin was designed by Canadian graphic artist Dave O’Malley, inspired by a photograph of the Snowbirds taken by Canadian aviation photographer and publisher Mike Reyno. It features a highly-detailed view of the topside of Snowbird 9 and bottomside of Snowbird 8 revealing the signature “speedbird” design that was introduced by the team in 1974. The engraved “SNOWBIRDS 50” salutes the 50th anniversary of the team in 2021. This unique coin also features beautiful gold plating on both sides designed for the exclusive collector. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with “ELIZABETH II”, “D·G·REGINA” and “50 DOLLARS” engraved along the outer edge of the coin is featured on your coin obverse, along with a pattern on the field of a repeated design element taken from the official Snowbirds 50 logo. Project initiative, production liaison and historical text were provided by former Snowbird commander and team leader Dan Dempsey.
