9999 Pure Silver Gold-Plated Proof Coin RCM. Round and round it goes! A fixture of regional fairs, travelling midways and amusement parks, the sights and sounds of a carousel (or merry-go-round) never fail to charm the young and young at heart. Rarer still is an antique carousel, whose lights, musical ambiance and fanciful décor are a beautiful invitation to step out of time and connect with a bygone age. From the galloping steeds to the old-time music, Canadas antique carousels have a rare ability to create a sense of magic and wonder that stays with us forever. Your pure silver coin allows you to re-live that enchantment through the selectively gold-plated reverse that typifies the carousels fanciful décor. But atop the art of yesteryear sits an extraordinary interactive feature that sets this coin apart: your very own miniature carousel. Just like a real carousel, but sized for you to hold and cherish! Artist Calder Moore beautifully conveys the century-old ambience of an antique carousel in your coins design, where engraved elements typify its fanciful décor. Imagine the sound of old-time carnival music and the illuminating effect of the carousels lights that are represented by a row of bulbs that line a scalloped rounding board. Two illustrations of horse riders add a touch of vintage art amid the gold-plated, rococo-style scrollwork, which provides the base for an unusual topper: a miniature carousel. Carefully sculpted in outstanding detail, this silver piece is affixed to the coins surface in a way that allows for a rotational movement assisted by a magnet (included). As you turn the magnet to rotate the carousel, the selectively gold-plated horses mimic the up-and-down motion of their real-life counterparts. While the reverse includes the engraved word CANADA, the face value 50 DOLLARS and the year 2018, the rim is also gold-plated on both sides, where it frames the mirror-like proof finish. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Royal Canadian Mint Coin. Composition : 99.99% pure silver. Weight (g) 188.99.
