She is CanadaÕs most famous ship, the ÒQueen of the North AtlanticÓ that still rules the reverse of our 10-cent circulation coin. A five-time winner of the International FishermenÕs Race, the legendary Bluenose rounds the coast once more on this 5-kg 99.99% pure silver tribute piece, whose colourful evening sky was made possible by photonic colours Ñ an exclusive world first that has broken new ground in physics.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Yves BŽrubŽ features the Bluenose under full sail, starboard tack. The Grand Banks fishing schooner races past a historic view of Cross Island lighthouse beneath the evening sky, whose colours are made possible by proprietary photonic technology. The obverse features a shipÕs wheel that frames the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Already profiled in a number of publications, the award-winning advance in photonics was made possible through collaboration with researchers at the University of Ottawa.
