Craig C. asks: Were Canadian coins ever minted in silver, if so which ones and when did they stop minting in silver? Thank you, Craig
Canada issued silver coins from the dime to the half dollar from 1870-1919 in .925 silver and dimes to dollars in .800 silver from 1920 to 1967 (the dollar coin starts in 1935). Canada stopped .800 silver coins in 1967 and reduced the fineness to .500 fine in 1967-68. All silver business strike silver coin production ceased after 1968.
