Description Technical Specs Extended Information
From the “galloping” steeds to the old-time ambiance, an antique carousel has a rare ability to create a sense of magic and wonder that stays with us forever! This selectively gold-plated coin captures the timeless appeal of a classic carnival ride on the reverse, where the art of yesteryear is topped by an interactive element that will enchant the young and young at heart.

Artist Calder Moore beautifully conveys the century-old ambience of an antique carousel in this reverse design, whose engraved elements typify its fanciful décor. One can imagine the sound of old-time carnival music and the illuminating effect of the carousel’s lights, which are represented by a row of bulbs that line a scalloped rounding board. Two illustrations of horse riders add a touch of vintage art amid the gold-plated, rococo-style scrollwork, which provides the base for an unusual topper: a miniature carousel. Carefully sculpted in outstanding detail, this silver piece is affixed to the coin’s surface in a way that allows for a rotational movement assisted by a magnet (included). As the viewer turns the magnet to rotate the carousel, the selectively gold-plated horses mimic the up-and-down motion of their real-life counterparts. While the reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA”, the face value “50 DOLLARS” and the year “2018”, the rim is also gold-plated on both sides, where it frames the mirror-like proof finish. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Revisit cherished memories or let loose your imagination through the magic of a movable carousel! Affixed to the coin’s surface, this miniature is capable of fully rotating with the help of a magnet (included). And as the carousel turns, the gold-plated horses move up and down—just like the real thing!
