2006 Canada $20 Tall Ships Collection - The Ketch Fine Silver (No Tax)

Prepare to be swept away by the most majestic sight at sea - tall ships. This finely craft coin depicts a Ketch as it rounds the bend off of Cape diamond in southern Quebec. The sailors that can be seen are in the process of preparing the ship for a storm that is coming in. The rolling storm clouds and lightening flashes of the eminent storm are beautifully represented in the partial hologram.

The Ketch is similar to a Yawl but has its mizzen mast in front of the rudder. This magnificent ship was one of the few ketches to travel along the St. Lawrence seaways in the early 19th century. Though the ketch brings back memories of the past this ship is a popular yachting ship of today. This is the second coin in this extraordinary collection of hologram-enhanced 99.99% pure silver coins following the full rigged three-masted ship.
