Recently got a beautiful Joan of Arc coin from the French mint! Found out about it in our Numismatist magazine. Thanks.
I would like to share with all of you my latest addition to my collection! First let me thank CoinLady, as she is the one who brought the existence of this coin to my attention. I had written a blog on July 28th titled "Wolves or Wolfs???" and because of her comment to my blog I was able to find this beauty of a coin and yes, a Wolf! It's a 1967 .50 cent piece from Canada in 80% silver. A Circulating Commemorative Coin for the 100th Anniversary of Canada. The obverse has the profile of Elizabeth ll, when she was just 39 years of age. The engraver is Arnold Machin. The reverse depicts a howling wolf with the inscription 50 cents, "Canada" 1867-1967. The engraver being Alex Colville. This beautiful example has a Proof-Like finish and some amazing blue toning. This just goes to show how the members here inspire, help and show interest in each other. Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome!
