According to the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins, 69th ed. (2015) p. 184, 206,398 pieces dated 1921 were coined. Because there was a very low demand for the 50¢ denomination between 1921 and 1928, virtually none (if any) was put into circulation. Almost all were melted and recoined in 1929 when the demand for 50¢ increased. It is estimated that only about 75 pieces dated 1921 survived because they were inserted in specimen sets or were circulation strikes sold to Mint visitors.
