2022 5 oz Canadian The Bigger Picture Series - The Coat of Arms Proof Silver Coin
The Canada Coat of Arms design is synonymous with the 50-cent piece, but on this 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver collectible, it shares the spotlight with all 13 provincial and territorial shields for a more complete representation of Canada through its heraldic symbols.
The coin’s reverse re-imagines the 50-cent circulation coin’s Canada Coat of Arms design as the centrepiece of an expanded representation of Canada through its heraldic symbols. The national armorial bearings are surrounded by 13 provincial and territorial shields (clockwise, from top): Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Yukon, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nunavut. The obverse features a maple leaf pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
