1968 Canadian 10-Cent Bluenose Schooner Dime Silver Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated)

 

Artist Emanuel Hahn developed his design for the 10-cent coin from photos of the famous Bluenose schooner. It is meant to symbolize both the magnitude of the fishing industry in Canada and the maritime skills of Canadians. The Bluenose was not only a racing schooner, but also one of the great fishing vessels that helped build the reputation of the Grand Banks fishery. The design was first issued in 1937.

 

Design

The obverse design depicts the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in right profile, when she was 39 years old. It is surrounded with the inscription "ELIZABETH II D • G • REGINA".

This coin depicts the Bluenose under sail, a Canadian schooner from Nova Scotia, a celebrated racing ship and a symbol of the province. It is surrounded with the facial value, the year of issue and the inscription "CANADA".
