2021 Canada Special Edition 100th Anniversary of Bluenose Silver Dollar Set

This year's Royal Canadian Mint Proof Set release features a brilliant uncirculated version of the 2021 Bluenose Proof Silver Dollar (available with this set only)! The brilliant uncirculated finish is a classical approach 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 and features the effigy of King George VI - just like the first Bluenose dime issued in 1937.

The BU 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 traditional, brilliant uncirculated 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.
