Canada's Coat of Arms was proclaimed by King George V in 1921 as a representation of Canada, and its political roots, especially its ties to Great Britain and France. The design features images from France (the fleur-de-lis), England (the three royal lions and rose), Scotland (royal Scottish lion and thistle), and Ireland (the royal Irish harp of Tara and shamrock). In 1957, the Tudor Crown originally featured in the Coat of Arms was replaced by Saint Edward's crown because it represents all of Britain's monarchs, rather than only those of one ruling family. It was modified again in 1994 so that the motto of the Order of Canada: Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam, Latin for "they desire a better country"—could be added.

Although proclaimed in 1921, Canada's Coat of Arms did not appear on the fifty-cent piece until 1937, and it was not until 1959 that the design was modified to include Canada's motto: A Mari Usque ad Mare —"from sea to sea." In 1997, the first fifty-cent pieces featuring the addition of the Order of Canada's motto were struck. Although no longer used as circulation coinage, this coin's limited mintage, and powerful symbolic representations of Canada's diverse heritage make it a favourite among collectors.

Comments about 50-cent Special Wrap Circulation Roll (2016):

If was meant to be a keepsake but now with no date showing on the coins at either end I have no use for it but to open and spend or give away

Why can't the mint at least show the obverse at one end and the reverse at the other end.

                      These are numismatic collectable coins. We recommend that you do not separate them so that they will hold their value.

                      Hi Steve, thanks for your comments. These special wraps rolls will not be available at your local branch; these coins are no longer in regular circulation and can only be obtained through this roll or through one of our select sets. There is a limit of 5 rolls per household.

                    As a marriage commissioner, I like to give these inside my thank you card to the newly married couple as a token for the year they were married. It is unfortunate that you do not have them available for the year at the beginning of the year. Is there some reason you choose to launch them in May or June instead of January like so many other coins?
