1948 Canadian 50-Cent Coat of Arms Silver Half Dollar Coin (VF)


50 Cents - George VI / Coat of Arms (1937 - 1952)

In keeping with a Government decision to modernize all coin reverses, a simplified Canadian Coat of Arms was chosen. The simplification involved omission of the crest, helmet and mantling, motto and floral emblems; in addition, no attempt was made to heraldically colur the shield and banners. The shield consists of the arms of England (three lions), Scotland (rearing lion), royalist France (Three fleurs-de-lis) and Ireland (a harp) and is surmounted by a stylized Imperial crown. 



Coin depicts the design of King George VI with the Latin inscription:
GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP: meaning "George VI, by the grace of Gold, King and Emperor of India"



Features the modified Canadian Coat of Arms as described by the Royal proclamation of November 21, 1921.
