Ah so! I have often wondered about that design, because Cabot's ship was supposed to be a caravel, which is a lateen-rigged ship, while the coin shows a square rigged ship...

South Africa, half penny, three different versions. The ship is probably a generic frigate (light warship).

See also the penny.
