Launch Date

Launch Date
Launched in 1921 and legendary by 1930, The Bluenose sailed into history when she won the International Fisherman's Trophy. After defeating the heavily favoured Americans, she beat every challenger for the next 17 years, solidifying her status as a symbol of perseverance, pride and achievement that still resonates with Canadians today. Now, you're invited to celebrate her esteemed place in Canadian history with The Bluenose Medallion Collection, 8 limited-edition racing schooner medallions, a first-ever exclusively from The Bradford Exchange. The Bluenose racing medallion collection begins with Issue One, Queen of the North Atlantic. The collection continues with Issue Two, Launch Date, Issue Three, Captain Angus with the Display Case. Five additional racing schooner medallions, each a separate issue, complete the collection.

Strictly limited to 1,921 collections, each medallion in The Bluenose racing medallion collection is plated in gleaming silver and features a sepia-toned image highlighting the history of The Bluenose. The Bluenose medallions feature noteworthy dates, people and events that created her legacy, including her launch date and her greatest racing victories. On the obverse side of every medallion is a classically designed nautical compass. Each finely crafted medallion arrives sealed in a tamper-proof capsule to preserve the richness of the silver plating. Along with your third medallion, you'll receive a mahogany-finished display case for the same issue price as the medallions, ideal for storing and viewing your prized collection. The Bluenose Medallion Collection is a wonderful way to celebrate this enduring symbol in Canadian history.
