The legendary schooner Bluenose has graced Canada's ten cent coin since 1937. In 1920 the Halifax Herald newspaper established the International Fisherman's Trophy racing series for bona fide working ships. Bluenose was built and launched in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1921 to compete for that trophy. It won and remained unbeaten for 18 years! The design honoring this winning schooner was created by Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn. The coin itself was minted in silver from 1937 to 1968, then in nickel from 1968 to 2001, when it was changed to nickel-plated steel. Over time Bluenose has become one of the national icons of Canada, along with the beaver, the maple leaf, and the Mountie.

This big silver proof features Bluenose - an historic fishing and racing schooner launched at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on March 26, 1921. In October of that year, Bluenose won her first of many International Fishermen’s Trophy series of races. Almost immediately, she became an important symbol of excellence in ship design, shipbuilding and seamanship for Nova Scotians and, eventually, for all Canadians.

Bluenose went on to serve actively as a fishing vessel. Her designer, William J. Roué, and her stalwart crew under Captain Angus Walters, became known and admired around the world. When the global economy faced stormy waters in the 1930s, Bluenose increasingly served as a cultural and tourism promotion vessel. Although Canadians lobbied strongly to preserve the ship as a national symbol, she was sold in 1942 and worked as a freighter in the Caribbean. On January 28, 1946, the ship was lost off the coast of Haiti. A replica, Bluenose II, was launched in 1963 and gifted to the Government of Nova Scotia in 1971. Bluenose II continues to serve as a goodwill ambassador for Nova Scotia and all of Canada.

Here's a coin with a ton of investment potential, to say nothing of cachet! It's huge (nearly 3 inches in diameter) and stuck in the purest silver refined anywhere in the world - .9999 fine! The numismatic circulating coin theme is extremely popular, too! Then there's that extremely low mintage limit - only 1,500! Don't let it sell out on you, get yours today!

The Royal Canadian Mint refines the purest silver in the world. This [link removed by eBay] coin is 99.99% pure!

The Bluenose schooner design was created by Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn and first used on Canadian legal tender ten cent coinage in 1937. The date of issue and denomination also appear.

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, in profile facing right. This portrait, the fourth effigy of the queen to appear on Canadian Coinage, was executed by the artist Susanna Blunt. The legend reads ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA ("Elizabeth II, Queen by the Grace of God").

The coin is encapsulated inside a burgundy leatherette, clamshell-style presentation case, lined with black velvet and protected by a full color, custom cardboard box. An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity is included.
