Here is a cool coin I picked up recently. Anyone have any info on it such as mintage? I believe it was part of a set but why would someone break the set up? Not my latest Canadian coin purchase, that one is in transit. Stay tuned folks.

That coin is the 50-cent piece from the RCM's annual silver proof set (mintage 15,000). It is .9999 silver, 9.25 grams.

Personally I break some of my sets up and I do have some in PCGS holders (especially US coins), though I still have plenty of sets in their original packaging. I do as I please, and I'm sure others do too (or they are breaking up sets, grading, and selling to try and bring a profit).

Thanks for the reply jazzy! Thought the mintage would have been higher.

So.....does the 'S' in the designation "S50C" on the label stand for silver? If the coin was from the 'clad' D-Day 75th Anniv. Set, how would it be labeled? Just "50C" or some other letter in front of the '5'?
I normally stay away from buying slabbed coins, but if I do have to pick up one in the future, I'd like to know a little bit more about labeling rules/techniques/etc. TY

PS: Oops, one more ?. Do all grading companies use the same labeling 'rules', or do they differ? TY (again)

S in this case does mean silver. For instance, I've seen silver dollars labeled as S$1. A clad 50-cent piece would be labeled as "50C".

This is where things get interesting. Not only would grading standards vary slightly, but you have differences like PF vs PR for Proof. NGC uses PF while PCGS uses PR.

In addition, I believe PCGS labels their silver coins without the S, so this coin would just be labeled 50C without the S, but have a note on the label that it is silver. That all said, I've seen dollars (specifically dollars) labeled as S$1 on PCGS holders, but no other denomination have I seen that with PCGS.

The 81's have some really neat repunches ... most from trying to reuse the 1876 dies from single serif N's (like the '76's) to full serif and going from Obv 1a's to Obv 2's without making new masters or hubs.
