From that most Canadian emblem, the maple leaf, to the national arms, the changing appearance of Canada’s 50-cent circulation coin mirrors the evolution of a nation that has now celebrated its 150th anniversary. This exclusive coin offers a unique 75-year retrospective of Canada’s 50-cent circulation Investment Opportunity!coin from 1943, featuring an historical coat of arms design beautifully enhanced with selective gold plating.

The Renewed Silver Dollar Series continues in tremendous style, with this Masters Club exclusive - another highly popular 2 oz silver proof! It's also among the lowest mintage silver half dollars ever issued! Featuring 24-karat gold plating on both sides of its beloved motifs, and housed in a luxurious, solid wood presentation case of the highest quality, we believe that this numismatic delicacy will be a rarity that continues to appreciate as the years go by.

An Historic Design
The design features a recreation of the Arms of Canada designed by G. E. Kruger-Gray, as it appeared on Canada’s 50-cent coin in 1943. At the center is the Shield, with the royal symbols of Great Britain and France in the upper quadrants: three lions (England), one lion within a “double tressure” (Scotland), the harp of Tara (Ireland), and three fleur-de-lis (France). In the bottom portion of the Shield, a sprig of three maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins.

Two Supporters hold the Shield: on the viewer’s left, a lion holds a lance with the Union Jack; on the right, a unicorn holds the royal flag of France. Above the Shield is an enlarged version of the Royal Crown, which reflects the monarchy of Canada. Both the rim and the arms are beautifully enhanced by the selective application of gold plating, which strikes an elegant contrast between the gleam of gold and the silver shine of the mirror-like background. Along with the reeded edge, the design includes the engraved face value 50 CENTS and the word CANADA, while the dual dates 1943-2018 are inscribed in a matching font to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the 1943 issue. The selective gold plating continues on the portrait side, which features the effigy of King George VI by Sir T.H. Paget.
