This 2019 five ounce fine silver $50 coin celebrates Canada and its many symbols. Each element tells part of the story, from an Arctic emblem to the rays of light.  Mintage is limited to just 1,250 coins. HST/GST exempt.


 The Design:

Look closely at the rock formation: from the inukshuk to the paddle, and the evergreens on both sides, the composition mimics the shape of the quintessential Canadian symbol - the maple leaf.


The Maple Leaf:

Few icons are as inextricably linked to Canada as the mighty maple leaf. It is a proud national emblem that is evocative of Canada's natural beauty, it has inspired artists; graced the uniforms of soldiers pursuing peace; and given hope to new Canadians looking for opportunities. It continues to evoke a sense of national identity among the millions who call Canada home. 

In addition to the maple leaf's presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country's coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths, and boughs in various forms for most of Canada's history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1858 to 1901. Since that time, it has always appeared on Canadian pennies until 2012.


The Inukshuk: 

The Inuit and other migratory people of the High Arctic have used the tools provided to them by nature to not only thrive in one of the planet's most hostile climates, but also help to ensure the survival of others in their region. One of these tools is the Inukshuk. Its name meaning "a thing that acts on behalf of a person," an Inukshuk is a sculpture of piled stone used as a place marker, navigational aid and communication tool.   

The arrangement of stones indicates the purpose of the marker. The directions of arms or legs could indicate the direction of an open channel for navigation, or a valley for passage through the mountains. An Inukshuk without arms would act as a marker for a cache of food.
