2014 Canada $20 Lost Ships in Canadian Waters – The R.M.S. Empress of Ireland

A commemoration of Canada’s well-known maritime tragedies, from the vessels that were lost to the stories that emerged from those fateful events.

The reverse image designed by Canadian artist John Horton, selective paint is used to recreate the imminent collision of R.M.S Empress of Ireland and the Norwegian collier Storstad during the early morning hours of May 29, 1914. Rolling in from the coast (engraved in the background), the thick fog comes between the two ships in the coloured centre portion of the image field. The shadowy image of the Storstad emerges from the right side of the image, its sharp bow in line to make contact with the Empress’s starboard side. The passenger ship’s stern and funnels are partially unobstructed by the fog in this image to provide a glimpse of the liner before tragedy would send it to its final resting place on the bottom of the St. Lawrence River.
