    The reverse design by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin 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.
