Action-packed Avro Lancaster B. III Bombers design by Glen Loates

Unlike most other Canadian coins, the obverse of this one features T. H. Paget's left-side effigy of King George VI, who reigned during the war. Arching around the rim are his name and the title that was used for him in Canada at the time, "GEORGIVS VI D.G. REX ET IND: IMP" (George VI, by the grace of God, King and Emperor of India), as well as the face value of the coin, "20 DOLLARS."

Glen Loates's reverse design features Avro Lancaster B. III Bombers during a mission over Germany. The plane in the foreground is closing its bomb bay doors after dropping its load. To the right is a German Messerschmitt BF-109, which has a trail of smoke because it was hit by a gunner from one of the Lancasters.
