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 is on the back of the coin - we only see the side with the coat of arms.

Wilf

Hello and thank you for asking. Although the Canada's Coat of Arms, a heraldic art form dating back centuries that was officially declared by King George V in 1921, the obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Chantal

I noticed on the roll of coins in your add the dollar sign is after the amount . Do you realize this is an error

jack

Hello Jack and thank you for asking. The french side of the wrapper is showing and thus the dollar sign is placed after the amount in the french language.

Chantal

How many 50 cent pieces are there in the special wrapped package?

Peter

Hello Peter and thank you for asking. There are 25 50 cent pieces in each roll.

Chantal

You show a mintage of 30,000 saying that "mintage is the maximum number of coins that will be produced. The lower the mintage, the rarer the coin". However in Numista it shows a mintage of 750,000 for this coin. What is the correct number?

BMPJ

Hello and thank you for asking. Both numbers are correct. The 30,000 refers to the rolls as the 750,000 refers to the 50 cent piece.

Chantal

Why are they so expensive when the face value is only $12 50.

GORDON

Hello Gordon and thank you for asking. The 50-cent Special Wrap Circulation Roll (2018) are not sold face value but as a collectibles. Fifty-cent coins are no longer in circulation but you can still enjoy this rarity by acquiring a coin roll freshly minted for 2018.

Chantal

Why do they call it a circulation coin if it is not released for circulation? Maybe it is just me..... but I'm confused!

Jamie

Hello Jamie and thank you for asking. The circulation coins are released in circulation eventually, but we also produce sets with our circulation coins as people enjoy preserving coins as keepsakes, memorials, even talismans, such as the 'lucky' quarter tucked away in a drawer or the silver dollar minted in a birth year. To a collector, a coin can be precious for many reasons: as a piece of history, as an expression of a culture, as a work of art. A circulation coin does not have the same finish and are not produced the same way a collectible is.

Chantal

Why is the 50 cent coin no longer minted for circulation?

MICHAEL

Hello Michael and thank you for asking. Basically, in recent decades, the fifty-cent circulation coin has not been widely used in day-to-day transactions and requests for 50-cent coins mainly come from collectors and dealers. A business decision was made to take them out of circulation.

Chantal

How many coins in a 50 cent special wrap circulation roll?

Lou

Hello and thank you for asking. There are 25 coins in the 50 cent Special Wrap Circulation Roll.

Chantal
