This year's seven-piece Special Edition Silver Dollar set features a brilliant uncirculated version of the 2021 Bluenose Proof Dollar, and it's only available as part of the set. A traditional BU (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.

Bluenose centennial anniversary extends to the set's 10-cent coin, which is double dated and features the effigy of King George VI—just like the first Bluenose dime issued in 1937. Order today!

Coin design:
Designed by Canadian marine artist Yves Bérubé, your BU dollar'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.

"It doesn't matter which part of Canada you were from, Bluenose represented us all — and still does. I can't imagine a Canada without Bluenose. I spent a good part of my life at sea, and so did my family. For me, Bluenose is more than just a ship; Bluenose is a proud, beautiful symbol of history and tradition on the East Coast, where it represents every sailor, fisherman and shipbuilder."
Yves Bérubé: Artist
