DESIGN: 
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.

This magnet is very powerful. Do not swallow. Attraction of magnets in the body may cause serious injury. Do not handle magnet if you have a pacemaker. This product is not a toy. Keep away from magnetic media storage devices.
