2015 Canada $20 The Canadian Home Front - Canada's First Submarines During the First World War Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 133224

In the summer of 1914, the Royal Canadian Navy was still in its infancy when the looming threat of war sparked fears of an enemy naval threat to Canada's lengthy coastline. The addition of two new submarines to the Royal Canadian Navy's fleet on the West Coast would help the young nation contribute to its own coastal defences as part of the war effort on the home front.
