2017 Canada $20 Consolidated Canso - Aircraft of the Second World War Series Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 156472

The flying boats of the Second World War were prized for their long-range flight capabilities, but it was an amphibious version of the Consolidated PBY Catalina seaplane that caught the eye of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). Re-designated as the Consolidated Canso and manufactured here in Canada, this legendary anti-submarine patrol bomber is brought to life once more on this third (and final) coin in the Aircraft of the Second World War series.
