Provident Metals carries 1953 - 1967 Canadian Silver Dollars composed of .6 troy ounces of 80% pure silver. Each silver coin arrives in almost uncirculated condition or better.
Available at low premiums, pre-1967 Canadian Silver Dollars maintain their legal tender status, making them highly recognizable and easy to trade in an emergency, while fiat currencies are subject to hyperinflation.
History of 80% Silver Canadian Dollars
Beginning in 1858, Canadian coins were produced across the globe in England, by the Royal Canadian Mint in London and the Heaton Mint in Birmingham. Twelve years later, the Canadian Silver Half Dollar was introduced containing .925 sterling silver and bearing the image of Queen Victoria of England.
As the Canadian population began to boom, so did the demand for an independent mint, and in 1901, the Royal Canadian Mint was authorized. It opened its doors in Ottawa seven years later, and in 1935, the mint issued its first silver dollar to celebrate King George V’s Silver Jubilee.
Up until 1967, Canadian dollar coins were composed of .6 troy ounces of 80 percent silver. That year, the Royal Canadian Mint began to produce circulation coins with only 50 percent silver, though they appeared identical to 80% Silver Dollars from decades prior. In 1968, the mint started to issue Canadian coins with a composition of 99 percent nickel.
The Royal Canadian Mint (or the Monnaie Royale Canadienne as it is known in French) is the Crown Corporation that produces all of Canada’s circulation coins. It is the world’s only mint to issue commemorative coins in a .9999 fineness, while also striking bullion coins and bars, medallions, and even tokens.

- Favorite item from Provident!wayneon 6/24/13
OverallI love love love these things!
What is really cool is each time I order it seems like silver goes down and so I am able to order again at an even better price...
My only hope on these is that one of these days I will get some of the BC Sil;ver Dollars or a batch with some in the 1950's... nearly all have been 1962 to 1966 but this time I was blessed with a couple 1967 Canadad goose coins... had to grab another roll in hopes of some older ones!
Always in AWESOME condition... never a dissapointment.
- Awesome coins in awesome conditionwayneon 5/31/13
OverallI originally ordered a nice group and was very pleased with what I had gotten... so much that I have ordered two more batches as I could afford them. My wish is that they would mix them up the dates a bit more as what I had gotten were all a 3 year time period... would be awesome to get some of the British Columbia ones in a batch as my wife is from up there so it would be awesome to get some for our grandkids!
Looking forward to seeing the next batch that should arrive any day! Love that Canadian silver, EH!

- Silver From the Great White NorthKenon 11/24/11
OverallI received 10 of these in the last two weeks and was very pleased. A general selection of 1965-1966 pieces in truly AU condition (nice luster with bag marks, etc.). These coins are really a "hidden treasure" in the silver stacking game. A couple of dimes over spot as compared to US silver dollars that dent the wallet heavily due to collector premiums. I'll take these Canadian bad boys all day long- a great sized coin with nice 80% silver content. As a suggestion for the future, I would like to see a quantity discount offered on these like many of the other "junk" silver offered.

OverallGot the coins in tubes of 20 each, in nice uncirculated condition, as advertised. Did not get any 1967 "Loonies" though, so would like to be able to special order a tube or two of 1967 dollars some time soon.
