The Coat of Arms of Canada
Coat of Arms of Canada Each circulation-strike Canadian half dollar features the Coat of Arms of Canada. These armorial bearings were created in the best traditions of heraldry. Like all heraldic devices, each element of the national arms of Canada possess a specific meaning.

For example, the large lion to the left and unicorn to the right are termed "supporters", and represent England and Scotland, respectively. Each holds a lance topped with a flag - the lion supports the Union Jack of the United Kingdom, while the unicorn's lance flies the gold fleurs-de-lis of royal France. Beneath the supporters and the shield (or "escutcheon"), a banner carries the motto of Canada: A Mari usque ad Mare, which is Latin for "From Sea to Sea". In this way each element of the Coat of Arms of Canada represents something of significance, resulting in a set of arms rich in symbolism.
