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.

?What Year is it?

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.

If l do order one is it better to keep them in the roll or separate them

Janice

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

.50 cent pieces, tube says 12.50 in .50 cent pieces, but you have added a significant mark up. And can i go my local RBC to but Canadian coinage at face value. Or will you sell me the eight rolls that I would like.

steve

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?

Robert

Thank you for your interest. We will take this into consideration. We also have our Gift Sets that are great for newly married couples that we launch very early in the year that might interest you.

metals used to produce its weight...again how many in a roll, do I have to pay delivery??? How much is it? If I order a roll how much is the total delivered to my place??

Ernie

This coin is made with three-ply nickel finish plated steel. There are 25 coins to a roll. The cost is $24.95. Delivery costs depend on where you live and how much you order but most orders to Canada cost $7.99.

Anonymous

is this a single coin or an entire roll of multiple coins?

Shawn

It is an entire roll of multiple coins.

Anonymous

Is it possible to purchase just one single 50 cent piece? I don't need or want 25 coins, I only need one coin.

Hobbyguy

Sorry these pieces are only available in the roll or in select sets.
