2017 Canada $20 Aircraft of WWII - Avro Anson Fine Silver (No Tax)

Nicknamed "Faithful Annie", the Avro Anson was reputed for its stability and rugged reliability. Its wartime production fuelled Canada's aircraft manufacturing industry, but its most significant role was arguably as the twin-engine aircraft of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). This fine silver coin honours the versatile Anson for its many contributions to the Allied cause during the Second World War.
