Original Work of Art by Renowned Artist Calder Moore
Investment Opportunity!Artist Calder Moore beautifully conveys the century-old ambience of an antique carousel in this reverse design, whose engraved elements typify its fanciful décor. One can imagine the sound of old-time carnival music and the illuminating effect of the carousel’s lights, which 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 coin’s surface in a way that allows for a rotational movement assisted by a magnet (included). As the viewer turns 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.
