2010 Canada Brilliant Uncirculated Silver Dollar - 100th Anniversary of the Canadian Navy (1910-2010)

It was the Second World War that really brought the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) to fruition. More than 120 corvettes were built to become the guardians of the North Atlantic escorting convoys and attacking submarines that had so threatened the fledgling navy during the First World War.

His/Her Majesty's Canadian Ship (HMCS) Sackville was one of the original 1939-40 Flower Class corvettes ordered for the RCN. She was built at Saint John (New Brunswick) and entered service in December 1941. The corvette class, with 122 built in Canada by war's end, had elevated the RCN to the third largest navy in the World.
HMCS Sackville gained recognition for engaging three U-boats at sea. Although she sustained heavy damage, Sackville was retained for post-war service, first as a training ship and afterwards as a research vessel for the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. In 1982, she was acquired by The Canadian Naval Memorial and reconverted to her original state in 1994. Today, as the last surviving corvette, Sackville serves as The Canadian Naval Memorial, a living museum dedicated to the courageous people who have served in Canada's navy. She is berthed at the Sackville Landing Wharf, Lower Water Street in Halifax (Nova Scotia).
