About the first coin Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin, your coin features a starboard side view of Canada's iconic schooner, the Bluenose, under full sail and heeled at a distinctive racing angle. The legendary racing ship and working fishing vessel is brought to life through intricate engraving that captures her likeness in outstanding detail, including the rigging and even the dories on deck. Atop the foremast and mainmast, the Canadian Red Ensign and the Flag of Nova Scotia flap in the wind that fills the ship's eight sails, as the Bluenose charges for victory in the waters of the North Atlantic.

The Bluenose had to be competitive for racing purposes, but the Bluenose was also designed to be a working fishing craft. The salt banker schooner proved her worth in her first season at sea by sailing into port with remarkably large cargoes of cod and groundfish from the Grand Banks, and would land a record haul in 1923. Yet her racing feats would soon eclipse any other success when, in October 1921, she claimed her first of five victories in the International Fishermen's Race—and a Canadian racing legend was born.

As the fishing industry declined in the 1930s, the Bluenose transitioned to a role as a show vessel and floating ambassador, representing Canada at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933 and in the Silver Jubilee celebrations for King George V and Queen Mary in 1935. Another racing victory came in 1938 but by 1939, the Bluenose was out of work and at risk of being auctioned off. The outbreak of the Second World War and the shift to motorized schooners meant retirement for both the fishing vessel and her captain; sold to the West Indies Trading Company in 1942, the Bluenose sailed as a freighter in the Caribbean until 1946, when she tragically struck a coral reef and sunk in the waters off of Haiti.


A timeless and elegant wooden case is included with each subscription, allowing these grand vessels to be the subject of admiration and awe once again—this time, as a treasured part of your collection.

Is the mintage of "Bluenose" (coin-sets and single coins together): 275 or 550 ?


The mintage is 275.


how many karats is the gold


Hi neil - these are 99.99% pure gold, or 24 Karat.


Will it be the same Mintage for the other three coins in this set?


Hi Priority, Yes, the mintage of the other three coins is the same as the first coin.


I would be skeptical about 275 mintage. The same coin can be purchased separately and not part of the set. So its has to be more that 275 mintage. If they are doing that! seriously Misleading?!?!


How often wil we receive a coin? Is it monthly?


Hi John, Coin 1: Bluenose, ships now Coin 2: Marco Polo (priced at $2,699.95), ships May, 2016 Coin 3: Amazon (priced at $2,699.95), ships August, 2016 Coin 4: HMS Discovery (priced at $2,699.95), ships October, 2016
