Sexy Schooners!

In my last silver post we learned about the Caravel, a small type of maneuverable sailing ship the Portuguese used to explore the world and discovered the Americas.

Today we have another type of ship...

The ship depicted in my collection of silver 10 cents from Canada is a schooner. What a silly word 😅🤣

A type of sailing vessel defined by its rig: fore-and-aft rigged on all of two or more masts and, in the case of a two-masted schooner, the foremast generally being shorter than the mainmast. source and more info

But it's not just a random schooner but a famous Canadian ship called the Blue Nose.

Bluenose was a fishing and racing gaff rig schooner built in 1921 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. A celebrated racing ship and fishing vessel, Bluenose under the command of Angus Walters, became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930s, serving as a working vessel until she was wrecked in 1946. Nicknamed the "Queen of the North Atlantic", she was later commemorated by a replica, Bluenose II, built in 1963. source and more info

As for my coins, they are from the following dates:

  • 1939, 2.33 g, 0.800 silver
  • 1949, 2.33 g, 0.800 silver
  • 1960, 2.33 g, 0.800 silver
  • 1964, 2.33 g, 0.500 silver
  • 1968, 2.33 g, 0.500 silver

The ones minted in 1968 (and 1969) were the last to be made of silver and in the same dates there were also non-silver ones minted, by nickel.

Here are is how they look from the other side:

Notice how the older ones feature George VI, remember Elizabeth became queen in 1952 after the death of her father King George VI. In 1939 she was only reaching adulthood..

Another cool thing I only noticed while writing this post is how her portrait changes over the years

Ok, enough history for today! More sexy ships in the next silver post 🚢⚓🚢

So did they actually change the portrait by reminting the coin as the queen came of age back then?

A beautiful coin from 1968. I usually follow the videos of the treasure hunters. That's why, when I saw the coins from the pictures, I wanted to go to your friend and examine them. thank you for sharing

The Canadian try 80% silver isn’t bad, but our 90% stuff is better.🤣

I think the deceased hag is pretty dominant on coins due to her vast kingdom and 70 years on the throne. Charles might not get that fancy coins due to his repu and he is almost quite old for a throne.

Coins with Bluenose rig are still minted in Canada, many of them are available in colors, but those are quite expensive at the moment.

I hope you'll conquer the collection of @kerrislravenhill by adding more imperial ships to your collection. !LOLZ

I'd be impressed if he could match just my Bluenose collection.

There are lots of non-silver 1968 !0 Cents minted too, a quick test I used is an ordinary magnet to distinguish them. I lost count on how many silver Canadian 10 Cents I have. ⛵

I haven't tried the tub thing but I have more than I can possibly lift proving that a thief with a 500 oz. monster box can't possibly run faster than a person chasing after him with a Katana.

I am starting to like silver. It seems more substantial then shitcoins.

Question: So the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria were all Caravel?
Small maneuverable ships..
