1917-C Newfoundland 50-Cent Half Dollar Silver Coin (VG)

 

50 Cents - George V (1911-1919)

In an act of 1863 Newfoundland turned to decimal currency and adopted the Spanish dollar as its unit. This made the British shilling equivalent to 24 cents and the sixpence to 12 cents.

 

C Mint Mark

Ottawa Mint issues (1917-1919) have a 'C' mint mark below the oval at the bottom on the reverse. The Royal Mint issues have no letter.

 

Obverse

The obverse was derived from a model by Sir E.B. MacKennal and is identical to that used for the 1912-1936 Canadian issues. The legend contains DEI GRA: by the Grace of God, indicating that the modification of the Canadian obverses were made during 1911.  
 

Reverse

The reverse design is the same as used for Edward VII.
