Canadian circulation coins get a new life! This uniquely shaped coin is part of the Royal Canadian Mint's 6-coin series of intricately shaped fine Silver coins featuring iconic designs transcending their circular boundaries with 24kt Gold plating.

Sold out at the mint! Though it was among the first Canadian denominations struck at the new Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint in 1908, a 50-cent piece is a rare sight in everyday commercial transactions today. The Royal Canadian Mint continues to produce the 50-cent piece every year, but does not actively circulate it with other standard coins.

Coin Highlights:
  • Limited mintage of 1,200 coins.
  • This uniquely-shaped selectively Gold-plated $50 coin is .9999 fine Silver with a width of 66.7 millimeters, a height of 50.7 millimeters, and a nominal weight of 100 grams.
  • Coins come in a mint-issued premium presentation case with a stand and a certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: The obverse features a stylized pattern of coat of arms silhouettes, and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
  • Reverse: This coin has been specifically designed for consistent weight while also ensuring that the subject remains unaltered from the original in detail and proportions. From the 1994 50-cent coin reverse design, this rendering of the Canadian Coat of Arms includes a wide range of symbolic imagery. A lion holding a Union Jack flag on the left and a unicorn holding a flag bearing three French fleurs-de-lys on the right support a central shield divided into five sections bearing historical emblems of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as a sprig of three maple leaves. The shield is encircled with a ribbon representing the Order of Canada bearing the motto desiderantes meliorem patriam, which means "desiring a better country." The shield is surmounted by a royal helmet within a garland of maple leaves, upon which stands a crowned lion holding a maple leaf. St. Edward's Crown, symbolizing Canada's constitutional monarchy, rests above the lion, which symbolizes Canada's sovereignty. The motto a mari usque ad mari ("from sea to sea") appears in a ribbon below the shield, along with a "compartment" or garland composed of the floral emblems of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland. The image is portrayed within its own silhouette.
  • Sovereign coin backed by the Canadian government.
