The Golden Beaver
Special Edition
18 karat yellow gold lapel pin made by Neil Aird to commemorate the Golden Anniversary of the Beaver. Only three pins exist.

One went to test pilot George Neal, one to Russ Bannock, who piloted the first flight of the Beaver. The third belongs to the artist. (Not any more - I gave it as a memento to the fine pilot who flew me across Canada in "Olivia" - Viking's Chief Test Pilot, Don Berends!)

Check out the Canadian $20.00 coins that Neil designed for the
Royal Canadian Mint in 1999. The
de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter
and the
de Havilland DHC-8 Dash Eight
