2019 Canada 1 oz Silver First Non-Stop Transatlantic Flight Proof

SKU 17133
In 1969, Canada Post issued a 15-cent stamp to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first non-stop transatlantic flight. Now, 50 years, the Canadian stamp is forever immortalized on this stamp-shaped, .9999 fine Silver coin.

On June 14, 1919, a modified First World War Vickers Vimy bomber lifted off from St. John’s, Newfoundland and flew straight into the history books. British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown persevered through a rough takeoff, equipment failures, fog, ice and snow before crash-landing the next day in County Galway, Ireland. In doing so, they became the first aviators to cross the Atlantic Ocean in less than 72 consecutive hours — a new milestone in aviation history.
