2017 50-CENT FINE SILVER COIN 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 1917 HALF-DOLLAR. From that most Canadian emblem, the maple leaf, to the national arms, the changing appearance of Canadas 50-cent circulation coin mirrors the evolution of a nation that is now celebrating its 150th anniversary. This exclusive coin offers a unique 100-year retrospective of Canadas 50-cent circulation coin from 1917, featuring a design beautifully enhanced with selective gold plating. The reverse presents a meticulously engraved recreation of the crossed maple boughs original designed by L. Wyon and later modified by W. Blakemore, which appeared on Canadas 50-cent coins before 1937. The boughs of 22 leaves and St. Edwards 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. The selective gold plating continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. This EXCLUSIVE coin is only available to members of the Masters Club.
