Hoist the sails and set a course for Canada’s Tall Ship era. Order today!

COIN #1! The Royal Canadian Mint's new annual series of $200 pure gold coins is a collectible ode to Canada’s Golden Age of Sail. Each instalment brings a different type of tall ship to the fore, beginning with the brigantine highlighted on this coin. The backbone of Canada’s marine industry in the 19th century, the brigantine was the versatile workhorse that plied the coastal trade routes and sailed on the high seas. This tall ship is distinguished by a fully square-rigged foremast and a fore-and-aft mainsail—a combination that made it easier to manoeuvre in rivers and along Canada's eastern coastline, where the busy shipyards, ports and harbours connected to the world.

This coin’s reverse design by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross features a unique perspective that captures the majesty of the brigantine, a two-masted tall ship that played an important role in Canadian history. Backed by clouds that sit low on the horizon, two brigantines are shown on the open sea, where the wind fills their canvas sails. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, a face value of “200 DOLLARS”, and the year “2022”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Originally, “brig” was short for “brigantine” but it eventually came to signify a vessel with a different type of rigging than the brigantine. The brig is the larger of the two; it had two square-rigged masts that gave it greater sailing power for ocean passages but required a bigger crew.

One of the most famous Nova Scotia-built brigantines is the legendary ghost ship Mary Celeste, which was originally launched as the Amazon in 1861 (the tall ship was previously featured on one of the Royal Canadian Mint's coins). Another Canadian brigantine, the Dei Gratia, came upon an abandoned Mary Celeste near the Azores in 1872, and the fate of the ship’s missing crew remains an unsolved mystery.


This coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
