Product Overview
While Elizabeth II immediately became Queen upon the death of her father in February of 1952, her effigy first appeared on coins of Canada in 1953, the year of her coronation. In the early 1950s, half-dollars were made of silver with a face value similar to their precious metal value, and they were still used widely in commerce. Throughout the 70-year reign of Her Majesty, the coinage of Canada has evolved, including half-dollars becoming an unusual and typically low-mintage denomination. This complete collection includes every date of issue of the Canadian half-dollar issued both for circulation and in special-issue collector rolls spanning the entire reign of Queen Elizabeth II as well as the 1952 King George VI issue from the year she became Queen.  

During this period, coins were issued in every year except in 2003 and 2004. In 2002, the half-dollar featured a special coronation effigy of the Queen, marking the golden jubilee of her reign. In 2021, two different half-dollars designs were issued, including one featuring the Queen's father, King George VI. In total, this complete collection includes 71 coins in a premium display, with 16 of them struck in silver. This is a high-quality collection with the coins from 1952 to 1958 in extremely fine to about uncirculated condition and all of the coins from 1959 to 2022 in brilliant uncirculated condition.
