5   escudos.  Belmira. Sailing cutter, probably a fisherman. May have been named after Belmira Nunes Lopes, a successful Cabo Verdean immigrant in New England, who wrote an autobiography.

10  escudos.  Carvalho. Schooner, around 1900

20  escudos.  Novas de Alegria. Another schooner. Probably used as a small freighter.

50  escudos.  Senhor das Areías. Looks like a cruising yacht with Bermuda rigging (latin sails only) for the tourist trade.
An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Canada, 10 cents, 1954.

Bluenose was a Canadian fishing and racing schooner from Nova Scotia built in 1921. A celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, Bluenose became a provincial icon for Nova Scotia and an important Canadian symbol in the 1930s. The name "bluenose" originated as a nickname for Nova Scotians in the late 18th century.
