The Elizabeth II Canadian 10 Cent Silver Coins were produced from 1953 to 1967. Each coin is adorned with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II obverse of the coin, and a depiction of a Bluenose schooner on the reverse. This coin is a mix of metals, which means that the net weight of the coin is 2.3100 grams, but the actual amount of silver in the coin is 0.06 troy oz of fine silver. These coins were once in actual circulation and will show signs of wear.
The obverse of the coin was designed by Mary Gllick, and is inscribed with the words, "Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina," which translates, Queen by the Grace of God. On the reverse of the coin is a picture of a Bluenose Schooner, a ship used in Canada as either a fishing vessel or a racing vessel. The reverse of the coin is inscribed with, "Canada," the year the coin was produced, and, " 10 Cents." The reverse design for the Canadian ten cent piece was designed by Emanuel Hahn. The coin was minted by the Royal Canadian Mint of Ottawa, Canada.
