2023 Canada 50-cent King Charles III First Strikes Special Wrap Circulation Roll
Please note that these rolls may be double-headed (King on either side of the roll)
It’s rare to find a 50-cent coin in your pocket change, but with a Special Wrap Roll, your collection can be easily updated to include the 2023 edition – in fact, it’s the only way to get 2023-dated 50-cent circulation coins outside of a set! Each Special Wrap Roll consists of 25 uncirculated 50-cent coins wrapped in an illustrated paper. The obverse features the new Canadian effigy of His Majesty King Charles III.
In Canada, the 50-cent denomination dates back to 1870, when it was introduced as part of the first national coinage issued by the newly created Dominion of Canada.
Inside your Special Wrap Roll, the reverse of each 50-cent coin features Canada's Coat of Arms, which was adopted by proclamation of King George V in 1921 and first appeared on the 50-cent piece in 1937. Each coin's obverse features the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III.
