Big Coin Series: 50-Cent Coin
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.

Though it was the first Canadian coin struck at the new Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint when it opened in 1908, the Canadian 50-cent coin is a rare sight in everyday commercial transactions. 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 2004, the 50-cent coin has only been sold directly from the Royal Canadian Mint as a collector product.

Since 1937, the 50-cent coin has borne on its reverse the Canadian Coat of Arms. The original 1937 design by British artist G. E. Kruger-Gray was replaced in 1959 with an image by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Thomas Shingles that reflected contemporary changes to the Arms itself.
