The reverse is also engraved with the text “CANADA,” the date “2015,” and the face value of “10 CENTS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty’s portrait is gold-plated, along with the raised obverse edge.

          I have been collecting coins for years and have been impressed with many coins and designs over the years, but the 10 cent 5 oz coin was way beyond expectations. This coin is just spectacular !!! Get on board and grab one as it surely will be one to brag about.

          I can't wait to see the others in this wonderful collection !!!

          Wanted it to add to my collection. I plan to display it prominently. I like the detail and the contrast between the gold plating and background.

                I received my 10 cent Big coin yesterday and I have to say...It looks fantastic! The relief in the sails of the Bluenose schooner is quite high and that really gives the impression that there is actually wind blowing in the sails.

                The contrast between the textured silver background, the matte gold sails and the brilliant gold in the water and highlights in the ship bring the coin to life.

                If you are one of the lucky ones who managed to buy the Big Coin subscription, you will be very pleased when you receive your dime. If you are not a subscriber but you want to have a coin that will make you proud to own, to show and to admire, this is your chance!

                    THE BIG COIN SERIES IS BY FAR THE BEST SET I HAVE IN MY COLLECTION. THE LOON WAS GREAT, THE QUARTER LOOKED AMAZING BUT NOW THE BLUENOSE STEALS THE SHOW. WHAT A WONDERFUL LOOKING COIN WITH ALL ITS DETAILS. IT ALMOST SEEMS 3D WITH ALL THE GREAT DETAILS THAT HAVE BEEN CRAFTED ON THE BLUENOSE. NO WORRIES WHAT THE LAST THREE COINS ARE GOING TO LOOK LIKE AS THE SET IS ALREADY A WINNER WITH THE FIRST THREE. THIS WILL BE A SOUGHT AFTER SET ONCE COMPLETE, DONT MISS OUT!
