Military commemoratives have become some of the most highly sought-after of all international coin releases. And it’s no wonder when you consider we’ve seen some of the most significant worldwide military anniversaries in recent years – including the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
So it will come as no surprise to know that the Royal Canadian Mint’s 1oz Silver series paying tribute to the most famous battles of WWII has been so popular with collectors.
And there’s one coin in particular you’ll need to act quickly to secure – The Battle of the Atlantic.
Battle of the Atlantic
The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest ongoing campaign of WWII, spanning the entire war. Vital military supplies carried by merchant ships were targeted by Axis U-boats. The turning point came in 1943 when an Allied offensive dealt a significant blow to the U-boat fleet in the North Atlantic, paving the way for the Allies to regain control of the North Atlantic.
This special commemorative has been struck from one full ounce of pure .9999 silver – or “four nines” silver, the purest grade available for which the Royal Canadian Mint is known – to a perfect proof finish.
It features a poignant design offering a first-person perspective that places the viewer at the heart of the action— with a view above water and a glimpse of the danger that lurks below.
