Between the years 20 the Royal Canadian Mint struck 15,950,000 50¢ pieces; in comparison, during the same period 2,262,165,000 quarters were released (approximately 142 times as many). There was some correspondence between the size of Canadian coins and British coins of similar value. coinage circulate in Canada at par, and some Canadian coins (generally those with value less than 50¢, but mostly pennies and nickels due to their near identical composition) circulate in the United States as well, though recent changes to the appearance and composition of Canadian coinage have made acceptance of these coins by merchants in the United States less certain.
