A MUST-HAVE DUO FOR CANADA 150! Order today!

Celebrate Canada's 150th with this must-have pack of two specially wrapped rolls of coins you won't find in your pocket change. It features two versions of the tradition-rich 50-cent coin: the timeless design featuring Canada's official Coat of Arms, alongside another one bearing Canadian Heritage's official CANADA 150 logo!

Only twice in its history has the 50-cent coin featured a special commemorative design, and you can be the proud owner of the third special-issue in 80 years! It features the winning design from Canadian Heritage's contest that invited Canadian students to create a logo for Canada's 150th anniversary—the first public design to ever appear on this denomination!

Receive two 2017 50-cent special wrap rolls in one purchase! Order today!

Special features:
  • A FIRST! Your pack includes two special wrap rolls of the 50-cent coin in two designs—the traditional Coat of Arms design plus the special CANADA 150 issue!
  • UNIQUE! These coins are not available in circulation and can only be acquired as special keepsakes like this one!
  • TWENTY-FIVE 50-CENT COINS PER ROLL! Each coin roll includes twenty-five 50-cent coins in a special commemorative wrap.
  • LIMITED MINTAGE! Limited to 35,000 two-coin roll packs worldwide!

Designs:

Largely unchanged since 1959, the reverse design of Canada's classic 50-cent coin features the Canadian Coat of Arms. The history of our nation is powerfully conveyed through each of the richly symbolic elements—particularly within the shield, where a sprig of maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins while the upper portions honour the founding nations. On one side, a lion holds a lance with the Union Jack; on the other, a unicorn holds the royal flag of France. Saint Edward's crown above the crowned lion represents the monarch as Canada's Head of State, while beneath it all, a scroll reads Canada's unifying motto, "A MARI USQUE AD MARE" (From Sea to Sea).

On the reverse of the special commemorative issue, Ariana Cuvin of Toronto, Ontario, has transformed a maple leaf into an eye-catching mosaic representing Confederation. The four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867 (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia), while the remaining 9 shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed. Combined, they form the iconic symbol that represents unity, freedom and peace for people around the world—an ideal that is now 150 years proud!

50¢ – Canada 150:
Paired with the classic design featuring the Coat of Arms of Canada, the commemorative issue bears Canadian Heritage's official CANADA 150 logo by Ariana Cuvin of Toronto, Ont. Four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces of Confederation, while the 9 shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed.

50¢ – The Coat of Arms of Canada:
Paired with the commemorative issue which bears the Canadian Heritage's official Canada 150 logo, the reverse design of Canada's classic 50-cent coin features the Canadian Coat of Arms. The history of our nation is powerfully conveyed through each of the richly symbolic elements.

Packaging:

Each of your 50-cent coins is wrapped in a special illustrated paper.

                    • Q:

                      Are the coins randomly allocated to the rolls - or should I expect an equal number of each design. If allocated randomly, I suppose that there is the (albeit extremely rare) possibility of receiving all of one design, presumably not the maple leaf design.

                        You will receive an equal number of each design. One roll will contain only the Coat of Arms design and the other roll will contain only the Canada 150 logo design.

                      So confused. Is the coat of arms and the stylized leaf on either side of both rolls or is the Queen on the reverse or what? It never describes properly what is on the face and what is on the reverse of each roll of coins.

                      I would like to get one of each of the $0.50s but not a whole role of each. Will this be available? I already have the 12 coin set and was surprised that the $0.50s were not included in the larger coin set.

                      I also have the two special $3 coins (Spirit of Canada and Heart of Our Nation) as well as the 2017 Proof Pure Silver Dollar - 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation so am trying to get one of each of the special coins for Canada's150th anniversary.
