Features Canada's stately Coat of Arms

There's a timeless sense of history crafted into this 50-cent coin that was once an everyday part of commerce. It features Canada's Coat of Arms, a heraldic art form dating back centuries that was officially declared by King George V in 1921. The Arms first appeared on the 50-cent coin in 1937 and was updated in 1957 and 1994.

Highlights: Fifty-cent coins are no longer in circulation but collectors can still enjoy this rarity by acquiring a coin roll freshly minted for 2010, each one a distinctive collectible that can add a special touch to any gift.

Reverse: Canada's Coat of Arms as updated by Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, Fraser Herald and principal artist of the Canadian Heraldic Authority, in 1994. A new ribbon was added around the shield. Its inscription Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam (They desire a better country) is from the Order of Canada.
