Description
 
1999 Canada $20 Aviation - de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter Sterling Silver

Coin comes with COA and RCM issued case. This product may or may not come with the outer cardboard sleeve. As is typical with this series, the outer cardboard sleeve might have some light wear.

The single-engined Otter, with its superb short-take-off-and-landing (STOL) characteristics, dominated the bush plane market in mid-century; however, when fitted with floats, it had a limited payload. In the late 1950's, de Havilland developed a powerful propeller turbine to replace the piston engine, and worked with the military to refine its STOL technology.

These developments resulted in a new, twin-prop aircraft that would equal the STOL performance of its predecessor while surpassing its speed and load- carrying capacity.
