Haida Commemorative Coin

 

The Haida commemorative coin represents the Haida's two commissionings - her WW2 commission and her post-war commission.  The front of the coin has her name and two pennant/pendant numbers, her unofficial wartime badge and the accolade "Canada's Fightingest Ship", given to her due to her large number of WW2 surface actions.  The back of the coin has the unofficial motto of the RCN as the Haida did not have a ship's motto, her post wartime badge, an image of the ship and her period of service from the start of her first commission till the end of her second.

 

The cost is $18 per coin, which includes shipping anywhere in Canada.  To get more information on how to purchase a Haida commemorative coin, as a keepsake for your service in her, or for that of a family member who served in her, please email - info@forposterityssake.ca   Please put HAIDA COIN in the subject line.
