Yves Bérubé, artist

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

The Proof Dollar is a significant undertaking that demands one's undivided attention and passion. The narrative surrounding the Bluenose is far-reaching, and it is a true honour to tell. My hope is that all Canadians, coast to coast to coast, will feel re-inspired by its story, and will enjoy this anniversary as much as I have.

William James Roué is Canada's most famous naval architect. His iconic Bluenose, launched in 1921, became and remains a famous symbol in Canada and abroad. During the 1920s and 1930s, Bluenose came to represent not only Nova Scotia, but Canada as well. The history of this schooner and its skipper Angus Walters, competing in the International Fishermen's Trophy races, has entered Canadian lore and continues to fascinate us today.

Bluenose represented a marriage of labour and recreation. Its success transformed public perceptions of fishermen, broke down social and cultural barriers, and transformed our national identity. A hundred years after Bluenose was launched the vessel has continued to develop in significance and has retained its status as a Canadian icon and symbol of pride.

Bluenose is near and dear to myheart. I am a proud Nova Scotian, but the familial connection to the story makes it that much more special. The 2021 proof dollar helps keep my great-grandfather's legacy alive and represents an opportunity to re-educate Canadians on the significance of the vessel on the back of our dime. Seeing his signature on this coin is incredibly moving and very personal for the Roué family.
