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