Powered Flight in Canada: The First 50 Years Coin Series 

This 1992 Canadian $20 Fairchild 71c Sterling Silver Coin is part of the first ten-coin series commemorating the Powered Flight in Canada: The First 50 Years. Each coin commemorates an aviation hero and his achievements. These coins are composed of sterling silver and have a 24 karat gold covered cameo portrait of an aviation hero. This coin is the seventh coin in the series and features the Fairchild 71c.

Designed in 1932 mainly for civil use, the Canadian-built Fairchild 71C was a seven-seat utility monoplane developed from the famous Fairchild FC-2. The Fairchild 71C model featured folding wings and an undercarriage that could be quickly changed over from wheels to skis or floats. This aircraft served mainly as freighter in Northern Canada and was occasionally used for photographic surveys, as well as for technical training by the R.C.A.F. during World War II. 

The coin pictures a gold plated portrait of James A. Richardson, with the Fairchild 71c in the background.
