Why add this 1917-1919 Canadian Silver Half Dollar coin to your collection of precious metal treasures?

The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) issued the George V variety silver half dollar for only seven years, from 1912-1919 (no release in 1915). The series represents the final Canadian Half Dollar coin to feature a crowned monarch. The RCM produced 2.6 million of these coins between 1917 and 1919, an astounding 42 million less than the amount of U.S. Walking Liberty Half Dollars struck during the same time period.

  • This 1917-1919 Canadian coin is minted from .925 fine Sterling silver, with a weight of 11.6 grams.
  • The coin measures 29.72 mm in diameter.
  • The coin was circulated over a century ago, for a legal tender value of fifty cents.

Design of the Canadian Half Dollar

Obverse: The obverse features a left facing, crowned portrait of George V, the grandfather of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The image is encircled by the Latin inscription "GEORGIVS V DEI GRA: REX ET IND: IMP," which translates as "George V, by the grace of God, the King and Emperor of India." This rendition of the King appeared on Canadian coinage for the entirety of his reign, from 1911 until 1936.

Reverse: Centered on the reverse, below the King's crown, are the inscriptions "50 CENTS," "CANADA" and the date of issue. The text is surrounded by curved branches of sugar maple that are tied with a ribbon at the base.
