An Historic Design
Canada 2017 100th Anniversary of the 1917 Half Dollar and King George V 50 Cents 2 Troy Ounce Pure Silver Proof Masters Club Exclusive Special Edition with 24-Karat Gold PlatingThe obverse presents a meticulously engraved recreation of the crossed maple boughs original designed by L. C. Wyon and later modified by W. H. J. Blakemore, which appeared on Canada’s 50-cent coins before 1937. The boughs of 22 leaves and St. Edward’s 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 deeply mirrored background. Complete with its reeded edge, the design also recreates the engraved face value 50 CENTS and the word CANADA, and features the dual commemorative dates 1917-2017 to mark the centennial of the 1917 issue. The selective gold plating continues on the reverse, which features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal.

Canada 2017 100th Anniversary of the 1917 Half Dollar and King George V 50 Cents 2 Troy Ounce Pure Silver Proof - ReverseDid you know…
 - Canada's first Parliamentary Librarian, Alpheus Todd, was also a renowned expert on parliamentary government and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Canada?
 - The pre-Confederation fires and the 1916 fire are not the Library's only near misses. In 1888, the building survived a tornado - though the slate tiles on its wrought-iron roof dome did not. These were replaced with copper. In 1952, a fire in the cupola caused significant smoke and water damage to the Library's interior, necessitating structural repairs and reproduction of some of the wood fixtures.
 - The library underwent a major renovation between 2002 and 2006 that included replacing thousands of square meters of copper roofing, removing bedrock to create a basement, and enhancing internal climate control to protect the integrity of the collection.
 - The building in the Center Block is the main branch of the Parliamentary Library, but there are a number of other branches across Canada. The collection at the main branch includes approximately 600,000 volumes or works.
