2022 $30 Canada 2 Oz Silver The Red Knight Ngc Pf 70 Ucam First Releases
Before the Snowbirds, there was the Red Knight! From 1958 until 1969, the Red Knight delighted spectators across Canada and the United States with awe-inspiring aerobatic displays. The Royal Canadian Air Force's (RCAF) solo jet-aerobatic performer was equipped with the T-33 Silver Star (or "T-Bird", CT-133) and later, the CT-114 Tutor, which were decked out in a bright colour scheme, iconic red. These aircraft, along with the distinctive knight's helmet emblem they bore, have been colourfully recreated on this 99.99% pure silver tribute to the legendary (and much loved) Red Knight, whose show-stopping manoeuvres inspired a generation of air enthusiasts and enriched Canada's aviation heritage.
