Royal Canadian Mint's First Collector Coins of 2009

The First flight of the Silver Dart, and the Great Blue Heron Specimen Dollar are among the numismatic highlights from the Royal Canadian Mint’s 2009 Winter offerings. The Silver Dollar marks the centennial of flight in Canada. The Mint begins its second century of making coins in Canada by revamping some of the souvenir coin sets.

"The Royal Canadian Mint continues to stand out among the world's mints by producing collector coins of striking appearance and exceptional quality," said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. "The first collector coins of 2009 are shining examples of our passion for crafting coins of outstanding beauty and value for buyers from across Canada and around the world".

Here are the featured products being introduced.

100TH ANNIVERSARY OF FLIGHT IN CANADA2009 PROOF SILVER DOLLAR - 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF FLIGHT IN CANADA     (1909-2009)

Canadian history was made 100 years ago on the surface of a frozen Nova Scotia lake as the Silver Dart, Canada's first successful flying machine, celebrated its maiden flight on February 23, 1909. From its proving grounds in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, Alexander Graham Bell's Aerial Experiment Association laid the groundwork for a century of Canadian distinction in the field of aeronautics. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to showcase Canada's many flying icons, from the Silver Dart to Canada's Snowbirds, on a beautifully contrasting proof silver coin.

Designed by Ontario artist Jason Bouwman, this sterling silver dollar features an image of a young person running with arms spread like an

100TH ANNIVERSARY OF FLIGHT IN CANADA airplane's wings, symbolizing humanity's timeless dream of flight. In the background, the silhouettes of the Silver Dart, the Avro Arrow and a "Snowbird" Tutor Jet, illustrate Canada rich aeronautic engineering legacy. A close look at the overall design also reveals the ingeniously composed image of our beloved maple leaf. Limited to a mintage of 50,000.
