A couple of days ago, @thekittygirl showed a lovely Portuguese 1 Escudo clad coin.
So here are my silver Escudo ship coins.
Portuguese Silver Escudo Coins1932- 10 Escudos, 1934- 5 Escudos, and 1946- 2 1/2 Escudos
The Portuguese escudo is the currency of Portugal prior to the introduction of the euro on 1 January 1999 and its removal from circulation on 28 February 2002. The escudo was subdivided into 100 centavos. The word escudo means "shield".
In 1932, silver coins were introduced for 2 1⁄2, 5 and 10 escudos. The 2 1⁄2 and 5 escudos were minted until 1951, with the 10 escudos minted until 1955 with a reduced silver content.
One of my favorite ship coin is a Canadian commemorative silver coin. And I wanted to show this one too because my stacking sis @kerrislravenhill is Canadian and loves ship coins!
1949 Canada Silver Dollar Newfoundland Ship0.6 troy oz silver coin
The design of 1949 Canada Dollar coin commemorates Newfoundland becoming a province of the Dominion of Canada on December 31, 1949.
On the reverse of the coin is The Matthew, the ship in which John Cabot is thought to have discovered Newfoundland. King George VI appears on the obverse with the Latin inscription "GEORGIVS VI DEI GRATIA REX"
I have a passion for stacking precious metals and like collecting silver coins. I hope you enjoyed viewing these silver coins with ship designs as much as I did in sharing with you. Thank you and I will see you again soon!
