2006 Canada 14-karat Gold $300 Coin - Canadarm

 

 

Two golden achievements in one!

On April 22, 2001, Colonel Chris Hadfield made history as the first Canadian to perform a spacewalk when he installed Canadarm2 on the International Space Station 400 km (249 mi) above the earth.

This next-generation robotic arm was born on the success of the Canadarm, the first robotic arm ever built for space. The Canadarm proved so effective for the shuttle's astronauts that scientists wanted one for the Station - in fact, Col. Hadfield used Canadarm when he installed Canadarm2!

From the moment it became operational, Canadarm2 has been a critical component in the construction of the Station - and it will be equally important in its maintenance for years to come. Virtually every mission will rely on it - an amazing technological achievement that you can celebrate with pride as
Canada marks the 5th anniversary of this nation's first-ever spacewalk.

This exquisite 14-karat gold proof coin features Colonel Hadfield on his historic spacewalk with a laser-enhanced Canadarm at the ready to give a helping hand. Only 1,000 coins will be minted to capture these exceptional, all-Canadian milestones in space.
