The First Special Service Force was a collection of American and Canadian commandos tasked with offering a response to Axis aggression after America entered World War II. In 2013, the United States Congress passed a bill awarding all members of the Devils Brigade a Congressional Gold Medal. The Royal Canadian Mint also offers commemorative gold and silver coins for sale honoring these men. The oz First Special Service Force Silver Coin is now available to you for purchase online from Stout Gold & Silver.
Many of the modern Special Forces units in both the American and Canadian militaries trace their roots back to the formation of the First Special Service Force. This group of elite commandos fought as a joint American-Canadian force trained at Fort William Henry Harrison in Helena, Montana.
The group was under the command of the United States Fifth Army, and served in a range of theaters that included protecting the Aleutian Island chains in Alaska and fighting back against the Nazis in Italy and southern France. The group of commandos was disbanded in December 1944, but those 1,400 troops have never been forgotten for their contributions.
On the obverse of the oz First Special Service Force Silver Coin is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty features on the obverse of all Canadian coins, with this right-profile portrait created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
The reverse of the First Special Service Force Silver Coin features a primary design that bears the badge of the group known as the Devils Brigade. The spearhead was their shoulder patch, with USA stitched vertically at the top of the spearhead and Canada stitched horizontally down the center.
Flanking the spearhead emblem are two different possible designs. In original coins, there is a US Army star on the left and a Royal Canadian forces maple leaf on the right.
The Royal Canadian Mint issued these coins in honor of the Devils Brigade. The RCM operates two mint facilities in Winnipeg and Ottawa, and opened in 1908.

‘’I would highly recommend making online purchases from Stout Gold & Silver. I was a little hesitant at first because it was going to be my first time purchasing from them so I gave them a call and they took extra time to walk me through the process. Turns out there was not much to it, I placed the order for check payment, mailed off my check and they sent me an update when my order was being shipped out. All the pieces of silver came exactly as described and were undamaged, they did a very good job packaging the pieces. All and all, I am very satisfied and look forward to placing my next order with them. I hope this is helpful comment for anyone interested in doing business with them.’’
‘’ Started buying silver coins a few years ago, great service, honest prices. I always deal with a guy named Brett, he is pretty funny, super helpful, and very nice. 10/10 would buy again from them. ’’
‘’Best Gold and Silver dealer bar none! And the safe storage is both affordable and very secure. This business also has the advantage of being owned run by Tom Stout, who i would trust with just about anything. Admittedly I'm friends with Tom as well as a customer but he really is a man of his word, if he says it, that's the way it's going to happen.’’
‘’Ordered a 1986 Proor Libertad and was very pleased with my purchase! Great price and super fast shipping with no hassle. It even came with the original box and I thought it was just the coin. I work at a coin shop and it’s great to do business with other great coin shops. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks for the amazing coin!’’
