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. The outward-facing side of a carousel is known as its romance side, and tends to be more elaborately decorated than inward-facing elements. Its easy to spot a British-made carousel: it spins clockwise instead of the counter-clockwise direction of North-American carousels. On your coin, you can rotate the miniature carousel in either direction! A carousels horses or menagerie figures are classified by their stance: standing, where at least three feet touch the platform; prancing, where the front legs are raised in the air; and jumping, where all four feet are off the ground, as though in mid-gallop.
