A reminder of the previous toonie.

The positioning of the legend had to change to accommodate the new marks.

In 2017 Canada issued a new design series to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Each design was produced by a different designer. A 50 cents coin was also produced, but for collector sets only. However, it is said that the Canadians rarely use 50 cents coins anyway.
