Product Overview

From that most Canadian emblem, the maple leaf, to the national arms, the changing appearance of Canada's 50-cent circulation coin mirrors the evolution of a nation. This coin offers a unique 100-year retrospective of Canada's 50-cent circulation coin from 1917, featuring a design beautifully enhanced with selective gold plating. A low mintage of 4,000 coins means this two-ounce pure silver coin will be highly sought after.

The coin presents a meticulously engraved recreation of the crossed maple boughs originally designed by L. C. Wyon and later modified by W. H. J. Blakemore, which appeared on Canada's 50-cent coins before 1937. The boughs of 22 leaves and the imperial state crown (the solid gold coronation crown) are all beautifully enhanced by the selective application of gold plating, which adds a sumptuous golden hue that stands out against the mirror background. Complete with its serrated edge, the coin also recreates the engraved face value "50 cents" and the word "Canada," and features the commemorative dates "1917–2017" to honour the centennial of the 1917 issue. The selective gold plating continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal.
