Bermuda, crown, 1964. 

From Wikipedia:

The coat of arms of Bermuda depicts a red lion holding a shield that has a depiction of a wrecked ship upon it. The red lion is a symbol of England and alludes to Bermuda’s relationship with that country. The wrecked ship is the Sea Venture, the flagship of the Virginia Company. The ship was deliberately driven on to the reefs of Bermuda, by Admiral Sir George Somers, in 1609, to prevent it from foundering in a storm. All aboard survived, resulting in the settlement of the island. The Latin motto under the coat of arms, Quo Fata Ferunt, means “Whither the Fates Carry [Us]”.

I think this sea-lion sank that ship and is showing off. I hope the evil troll got caught and sent to prison.

Prolly meant as an early Galleon, as it looks too large, especially at the stern. to be a late Caravel.

I think it should go in the Galleons sub-board, unless you think it's a caravel, in which case it goes into the medieval ships sub-board. Maybe she's the Sea Venture, a bit of a one-off ship, but probably more at home with galleons. You have her upthread on other Bermudan coins also.

Bermuda, crown, 1959.  The ships "Deliverance" and "Patience.

The largest boat is a yacht, the smaller one a pinnace. The yacht would be sea-going, but the pinnace was meant to be on board of a large ship, to serve as a ferry between ships of a fleet.

Deliverance and Patience were constructed on Bermuda by survivors of the Sea Venture, part of the Third Jamestown supply fleet under admiral George Somers. This mission eventually gave rise to the "Hog money" series of coins, showing what may be the Sea Venture.
