Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin takes to the skies for a glimpse of the action during the Allied bombing offensive. Highly detailed engraving re-creates a representation of Avro Lancaster B. III bombers flying through a storm of flak (anti-aircraft fire) during a bombing mission over Germany. In the foreground, the Lancaster's bomb bay doors are about to close after the aircraft has dropped its load. The aircraft's positioning allows for a close examination of the twin oval tail fins, its "glasshouse" canopy and transparent nose, along with two of its four Rolls Royce Merlin engines. At a lower height, two other Lancasters have just dropped their bomb loads in the background. At right, is a German Messerschmitt BF-109, a stalwart of the Luftwaffe's fighting force; this aircraft's attack is cut short as it emits a trail of smoke after being hit by one of the Lancaster gunners.
