2017 Canada $20 Second World War Battlefront Series - The Bombing War Fine Silver (No Tax)

During the Second World War, Bomber Command operations over Occupied Europe, Germany and Italy represented Canada's biggest air commitment abroad, where tens of thousands of Canadians served in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and Royal Air Force (RAF). The Royal Canadian Mint reflects on the courage and sacrifice of these Canadians, who braved enemy fire and often-difficult flight conditions to complete their missions.
