This set includes 25 brilliant uncirculated half dollars in special collector wrap with the official Canada 150 logo, and 25 brilliant uncirculated half dollars in a special collector wrap with the timeless design featuring Canada’s Coat of Arms. Only twice before in history has the 50 cent denomination featured a special commemorative design, and Canada 150 has been selected as the occasion for a rare change to the classic coat-of-arms design. The special issue coin features the winning design from Canadian Heritage’s contest that invited Canadian students to create a logo for Canada’s 150th anniversary.

50 Cent – Canada 150:

The commemorative issue bears Canadian Heritage’s official CANADA 150 logo by Ariana Cuvin. Four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces of Confederation (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia), while the 9 shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed. Combined, they form the iconic symbol that represents unity, freedom and peace for people around the world.

50 Cent – Coat of Arms of Canada:

Largely unchanged since 1959, the reverse design of Canada’s classic 50-cent coin features the Canadian Coat of Arms. The history of our nation is powerfully conveyed through each of the richly symbolic elements—particularly within the shield, where a sprig of maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins while the upper portions honour the founding nations. On one side, a lion holds a lance with the Union Jack; on the other, a unicorn holds the royal flag of France. Saint Edward’s crown above the crowned lion represents the monarch as Canada’s Head of State, while beneath it all, a scroll reads Canada’s unifying motto, “A MARI USQUE AD MARE” (From Sea to Sea).
