Sail into history with the third Tall Ships coin.

Distinguished by the square sails on its foremast, the topsail schooner featured on the third pure gold Tall Ships coin is a striking example of the sail plan that made this type of tall ship both strong and nimble. The rigging allowed these two- (or more) masted vessels to carry more sail when sailing off the wind. More importantly, the square topsails provided increased sail area for more speed, and, combined with fore and aft sails, made the ship easier to maneuver in heavy seas—an important consideration for coastal trading in the 1800s.

Add a third Tall Ships to your growing fleet.

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


Every Tall Ships coin is an expertly engraved and exquisitely detailed portrait of Canada’s past. These are the wooden ships that shaped the course of Canada’s history, and they served as a testament to our nation’s seafaring traditions and shipbuilding prowess.


Topsail schooners were used in maritime warfare and were a popular type of privateer ship in the War of 1812. While lower sails could get in the way of the sailors working the guns, the small square topsails were less at risk of being ruined by enemy fire.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross features a three-quarter view of a two-mast topsail schooner heeled over and with all sails set to catch the wind. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, a face value of “200 DOLLARS” and the year “2024”. The obverse features the gold effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1998.
