Engraved on your stamp-shaped coin is a colour reproduction of a 1969 Canadian postage stamp, designed by Robert William Bradford and issued on the 50th anniversary of the first non-stop transatlantic flight. The original 15-cent stamp features a stylized map of the North Atlantic Ocean behind the Vickers Vimy bomber piloted by British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brow, who completed their historic flight from St. John's, Newfoundland, to Clifden, Ireland, on June 14-15, 1919. Like the original issue, the design includes the word “CANADA”, the historic flight date “1919”, and the stamp's “15”-cent denomination. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
