Recommended Posts

With silver marching forward in price the value of many Canadian coins are pegged to the metal value vs. numismatic value. Makes collecting more difficult in many ways. What do you think?

 

Silver $40.63/oz

Value (USD)

1920-1967 Dime $2.4377

1967-1968 Dime (50% silver)** $1.5236

1920-1967 Quarter $6.0944

1967-1968 Quarter (50% silver)** $3.8089

1920-1967 Half Dollar $12.1889

1935-1967 Dollar $24.3778

 

** The Canadian Mint issued two compositions of the dime and quarter in 1967. The standard 80% silver/20% copper variety and the 50% silver/50% copper type. In mid-year 1968, they changed the quarter and dime again from 50% silver/50% copper to a 99% nickel composition.

Basically some type pieces are now at risk of being melted- e.g. circulated 1935,1936,1949 dollars barely have a premium anymore since they're usually traded for $25-35 to start with. Ditto for very low grade and/or damaged 5 cent silver.

 

Circulated 1948 dimes and quarters are also pretty much scrap.

For the most part yes. All three of those silver dollar years are one year types. I am still seeing pretty resilient premiums on the 1936 dollars in EF+ though on Ebay. I had a lofty goal of putting together a grade set of 1936 dollars, so I search them somewhat often. From what I've seen you're spot on with the 1935 and 1949 dollars.
