Description
 
2009 Canada Gold Plated Proof Silver Dollar - 100th Anniversary of Flight in Canada. This coin was originally only available in the 2009 Proof Double Dollar Set. Coin comes in a square capsule.

On February 23, 1909, a silver-winged flying object called the Silver Dart amazed onlookers at a frozen lake in Nova Scotia as the object flew approximately .5 meters or .8 kilometers to carry out the first flight in Canada. Designed and built Aerial Experiment Association (AEA), a Canadian-American aeronautical research group that was formed under the tutelage of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, the Silver Dart made flight 50 times before it was destroyed during military trials. But it was a breakthrough since during that time, the value of flight during war was becoming an idea. True enough, after World War II, Canada became a leader in the aviation industry.

This momentous event is immortalized in this 2009 Canada Gold Plated Proof Silver Dollar Coin from the Canadian Mint. This coin is a welcome addition to your collection, especially if you want something of historical value. This coin was originally only available in the double dollar set, and now comes in a square capsule.
