2013 Canada $5 Devil's Brigade Pure Gold Coin (TAX Exempt) - 126600

In the midst of the Second World War, Canada and the United States, created a unit that struck fear in its opponents by silently striking at their front lines, swiftly dislodging them from terrain considered impassable, and fighting with the ferocity of a force several times its size.

The First Special Service Force (1942-1944) was the first elite special services combat force, forerunner to distinguished units such as Canada's Joint-Task-Force 2, not to mention the United States' Navy Seals, Delta Force, and Green Berets.

The First Special Service Force was the first and only time Canada and the U.S. joined military forces in this way. The two nations' collaboration is highlighted by the stylized star and maple leaf, layered with the FSSF (First Special Service Force) shoulder patch that united them in joint missions.

Every soldier of the FSSF wore this symbol on his left sleeve. The reverse also features the names of both nations while its arrowhead shape can be interpreted to symbolize the warrior spirit of the FSSF.
