# 931 - Ships on Coins - Part 18

in LeoFinancelast month

I am very fond of ships on coins.

I know that many people share this fondness. I have a few coins depicting ships.

So, I will post a series called "Ships on Coins" and I will show all the coins that I have on this theme.

There will be no order of presentation or country of issue. As the coins are stored in several places, I will simply search on each place and publish those that I found.

The seventeenth is a 2004-S $.05 "Keelboat".

The Westward Journey Nickels were issued during the years 2004 to 2006, intended to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase and the famous expedition through the territory by Lewis and Clark. During these years, the Jefferson Nickel featured four new reverse designs and two new obverse designs.

The coin was made of 75% copper 25% nickel and weights 5g.

The reverse design, by Alfred Maletsky, depicts the Keelboat that was used for Lewis & Clark’s famous expedition.

You're welcome @ronavel👍🙂

A very beautiful PF 70 Ultra Cameo @ronavel!! They we're rugged men using these Keelboats!!!😀

This was a circulating coin. You may have used it several times and never noticed...

That is entirely possible @ronavel, I guess I need to pay closer attention to change!😇

I can't even imagine what it might have been like to be Lewis and Clark, or any explorer really. Some of the terrain that they had to overcome must have been extremely intimidating!

This is a really nice PF70 Ultra Cameo nickel. It's beautiful and if you zoom in (or get a magnifier) it has nice detailing on the ship. Thanks for sharing!

Like a wood ship in the Arctic, I would never enter this keelboat to explore America...

😎👍 me neither!

Keelboat? Where does the cannon go? This is sort of a house boat isn't it? Cool, a mobile home.

That was the name that US Mint gave to this coin. As I have never heard this word, I don't know if it should or not have a cannon...
