The emblem of the so-called Devils Brigade, the First Special Service Force, features prominently in a series of silver and gold coins from the Royal Canadian Mint issued to honor the brave men who joined this volunteer force of American-Canadian commandos. In 2013 and 2014, coins issued by the RCM coincided with the US Congress issuing the Congressional Gold Medal to the members of the historic special operations force. Provident Metals currently has Canadian First Special Service Force 1/10 oz Gold Coins available to you for online purchasing.
When you buy the Canadian First Special Service Force 1/10 oz Gold Coins through this Provident Metals listing, you receive coins inside of protective plastic flips that are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The series launched at the Royal Canadian Mint in 2013 with a different design version on the reverse. These particular Canadian First Special Service Force 1/10 oz Gold Coins have a 2014 date mark and feature the second design version in the series.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of all Canadian First Special Service Force Gold Coins. Her Majesty is shown in the 2003 right-profile bust created by Susanna Blunt. This effigy of the Queen is the fourth-generation design for Canadian coins, the second-ever from a Canadian artist, and the first during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II to depict the monarch without a crown. The last time this happened was during the reign of King George VI from 1937 to 1952.
Known as the Devils Brigade and the Black Devils, the First Special Service Force had an easily identifiable unit badge that appears in a second rendition on the reverse of Canadian First Special Service Force 1/10 oz Gold Coins. This image includes the historic arrowhead badge design from the units shoulder patches, with USA inscribed horizontally above the word Canada. There is an American star on the left of the arrowhead and a Canadian maple leaf on the rich. Inscriptions read a face value of 5 Dollars and a date of 2014. Along the bottom are English and French inscriptions of First Special Service Force and Premiere Force de Service Special.
The First Special Service Force was organized in 1942 as a joint American-Canadian commando unit that trained at Fort William Henry Harrison outside of Helena, Montana, USA. The force four in Italy and southern France in the European theater, and contributed to the defense of the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.
