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.
- 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.
