***VIP Exclusive, limit one per household***

Canada’s 50-cent remains a constant, if elusive, collector favourite — one whose heraldic design imbues it
with a deep sense of tradition and speaks to the history of a proud nation. This exclusive coin looks back at
the half-dollar issued in 1943, which is re-created here in pure silver with a celebratory touch of gold plating.

The reverse features a re-creation of the stylized Arms of Canada designed by G. E. Kruger-Gray, as
it appeared on Canada’s 50-cent coin in 1943. At the centre is the Shield, with the royal symbols of
Great Britain and France in the upper quadrants: three lions (England), one lion within a “double
tressure” (Scotland), the harp of Tara (Ireland), and three fleur-de-lis (France). In the bottom portion
of the Shield, a sprig of three maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins. Two Supporters hold
the Shield: on the viewer’s left, a lion holds a lance with the Union Jack; on the right, a unicorn holds
the royal flag of France. Above the Shield is an enlarged version of the Royal Crown, which reflects
the monarchy of Canada. Both the rim and the arms are gold-plated, which strikes an elegant
contrast between the gleam of gold and the silver shine of the mirror-like background. Along with
the reeded edge, the reverse includes the engraved face value “50 CENTS” and the word “CANADA”,
while the dates “1943-2018” are inscribed in a matching font to commemorate the 75th anniversary
of the 1943 issue. The selective gold plating continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of
George VI by Sir T.H. Paget.

A collectible retrospective on
the story of Canada’s half-dollar! This 75th anniversary piece
re-creates the 1943 issue of Canada’s 50-cent coin—and it is
only available to our Masters Club members!
