Commemorating the 100 years since the Titanic's maiden voyage, this 50 cent silver plated coin with selective painting is an ideal gift for Titanic enthusiasts. The coin is hand polished, while the colour adds dimensionality to this unique collector item. The coin is presented in a clamshell case with a protective black sleeve.

The tragic fate of RMS Titanic has long captivated the world’s imagination. It is a story of doom rendered perhaps more tragic by the hope and beauty with which it began. In an age that measured itself in leaps of “progress,” the story of the Titanic became an instructional tale about fate and hubris—but also about sacrifice and honour. The year 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of this unprecedented steamship’s fateful encounter with an iceberg and Canadians, along with people all around the world, commemorate the lives lost, sacrifices made, and hard lessons gained from this momentous event in our shared history.

Designed by Canadian artist Yves Bérubé, the reverse features a finely detailed image of the bow of the colossal vessel as it steams westward on its tragic maiden voyage. Painted North Atlantic waters seem to shimmer and flow in its wake. The iceberg that sealed Titanic’s fate lurks in the foreground. The commemorative image also features the words “R.M.S. Titanic 2012.”

The perfect gift for Titanic buffs, history enthusiasts, and numismatic collectors seeking unique treasures for their collection.
