1992 (1867-) Canadian 50-Cent Coat of Arms/Confederation Half Dollar Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated)

 

The 50-cent coin bears the Canadian Coat of Arms. It honours the four founding nations of Canada: England, Scotland, Ireland and France. The inscription, "A Mari usque ad Mare," means "from sea to sea"; the second inscription, "Desiderantes meliorem patriam," means "they desire a better country." The current design was produced by former Royal Canadian Mint engraver Thomas Shingles and was first used in 1959. In recent decades, the fifty-cent circulation coin has not been widely used in day-to-day transactions, yet it remains popular with coin collectors.


Design:
The obverse design features a bust image of Queen Elizabeth II and the phrase "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA".

The reverse, designed by Arnold Machin, features Canada's Coat of Arms, a heraldic art form dating back centuries that was officially declared by King George V in 1921. The Arms first appeared on the 50-cent coin in 1937 and was updated in 1957 and 1994. Double dated with 1867-1992 commemorating the 125th Anniversary of Canadian confederation.
