2016 Canada Fifty-Cent Colourized Fine Silver Big Coin Series: 50¢ Coat of Arms Coin RCM. The Canadian 50-cent coin uniquely reflects the intriguing history of Canada’s evolution from British colony to independent nation. Appearing in various forms on the reverse of the Canadian 50-cent coin since 1937, the Canadian Coat of Arms references both Canada’s colonial roots and its political and cultural status as a sovereign state. In fact, many people, upon receiving this low-circulation coin, might slip it into their pocket to save, attributing to it a worth higher than its face value because of its relative rarity. Since 1937, the 50-cent coin has borne on its reverse the Canadian Coat of Arms. The original 1937 design by British artist G. Kruger-Gray was replaced in 1959 with an image by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Thomas Shingles that reflected contemporary changes to the Arms itself. Drawing its inspiration from minting itself, your coin is an exquisite gift for someone who appreciates Canadian coins. Royal Canadian Mint Coin. Composition : 99.99% pure silver. Weight (g) 157.6.
