Design: This coin has been specifically designed for consistent weight while also ensuring that the subject remains unaltered from the original in detail and proportions. From the 1994 50-cent coin reverse design, this rendering of the Canadian Coat of Arms includes a wide range of symbolic imagery. A lion holding a Union Jack flag on the left and a unicorn holding a flag bearing three French fleurs-de-lys on the right support a central shield divided into five sections bearing historical emblems of England, France, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as a sprig of three maple leaves. The shield is encircled with a ribbon representing the Order of Canada bearing the motto. Which means desiring a better country. The shield is surmounted by a royal helmet within a garland of maple leaves, upon which stands a crowned lion holding a maple leaf. Edward’s Crown, symbolizing Canada’s constitutional monarchy, rests above the lion, which symbolizes Canada’s sovereignty. Mari usque ad mari. (“from sea to sea”) appears in a ribbon below the shield, along with a “compartment” or garland composed of the floral emblems of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland. The image is portrayed within its own silhouette. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. One of the rarest and most collectible issues of the Canadian 50-cent piece is the 1921 issuesometimes called the King of Canadian Coins. Throughout the 1920s, the Mint produced only a very small number of 50-cent pieces. In 1929, to meet demand, the Mint melted down excess stock from 1921 to make the new coins. Fewer than 100 of these are believed to have survived to the present day. Packaging: Your coin comes packaged in a fun display case that highlights the uniqueness and beauty of your coin. 99.99% pure silver with selective gold plating. 50.7 x 66.7.
