2021 Canada 100th Anniversary of Bluenose Fine Silver Proof Set (No Tax)

This year's Royal Canadian Mint Proof Set release features a selectively gold plated version of the 2021 Bluenose Proof Silver Dollar! Gold plating adds a beautiful gleam to the legendary schooner and the effigy of King George V. This effigy appeared on all Canadian coins issued in 1921, the year Bluenose was launched and captured the International Fishermen's Trophy. The Bluenose centennial anniversary continues on the 10-cent coin, captured by the double date, 1921-2021.

The proof dollar was designed by Canadian marine artist Yves Bérubé, your coin's reverse travels back in time to see naval architect William James Roué (1879-1970) completing his design for the legendary Bluenose schooner. The first-person perspective is flat frosted to distinguish between Roué's vision and the inspiring sight of a selectively gold-plated Bluenose under full sail. As an added tribute, W.J. Roué's signature is included, as it appeared on the original Bluenose sail plan. The obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal.
