2017 Canada 50-cent 100th Anniversary of the 1917 Half Dollar (No Tax)

From that most Canadian emblem, the maple leaf, to the national arms, the changing appearance of Canada's 50-cent circulation coin parallels the evolution of a nation that has marked its 150th anniversary. This exclusive coin offers a unique 100-year retrospective of Canada's 50-cent circulation coin from 1917, featuring a design wonderfully enhanced with selective gold plating.

Your coin presents a meticulously engraved recreation of the crossed maple boughs originally designed by L. C. Wyon and later modified by W. H. J. Blakemore, which appeared on Canada's 50-cent coins before 1937. The boughs of 22 leaves and the Imperial State Crown (the solid gold coronation crown) are all beautifully enhanced by selective gilding, which adds a sumptuous golden hue that stands out against the mirror-sheen background. Complete with its serrated edge, your coin also recreates the engraved face value "50 CENTS" and the word "CANADA", and features the commemorative dates "1917-2017" to honour the centennial of the 1917 issue. The selective gold plating continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. MacKennal.
