The image used on this coin is the official coronation photograph taken by Cecil Beaton on June 2, 1953, licensed by the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London. Royal Canadian Mint engravers used many reference images of Westminster Abbey to enhance the details in the background of Her Majesty. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA,” and the face value of “50 DOLLARS.”
