First issued in 1935, the Canada Dollar Silver coins were available in circulation from the Royal Canadian Mint with actual silver content in the coins until 1967. From 1967 to 1986, the series continued on with its popular reverse design, but as a nickel-based circulation piece. The former circulation silver dollars from this series are an excellent option for those looking to boost silver holdings at an affordable rate. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 1958-1967 Canada Dollar Silver Coins online at Provident Metals.
The release of the first Canada Dollar Silver coins in 1935 was celebratory in nature. The Royal Canadian Mint marked the Silver Jubilee, or 25th anniversary on the throne, for King George V of England with the issue of the Voyageur design on the reverse side. The coins continued in circulation with silver content through 1967 and as nickel pieces through 1986. The obverse side was only adjusted to reflect the aging of the monarch or when a new monarch ascended the throne. King George V graced the coins for just one year as he died in 1936. King George VI graced the coins for the longest period of time, 1936-1939 and 1945-1952, with Queen Elizabeth II featuring the second-longest.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of all these 1958-1967 Canada Dollar Silver Coins. Each one has a right-profile portrait of the Queen, though the exact imagery in the portrait varies. The 1958 to 1964 issues have the original first-generation effigy of the Queen with a wreath crown in her hair. These coins have an inscription of Elizabeth II along with Dei Gratia Regina. The 1965-1967 coins have the second-generation effigy in which the Queen wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. The inscription of her name remains the same, but phrase Dei Gratia Regina has been shortened to D.G. Regina. Both inscriptions stand for Queen by the Grace of God.
You are most likely to find the Voyageur design on the 1958-1967 Canada Dollar Silver Coin you receive in this listing. This design shows a European trader and his indigenous guide paddling a birch-bark canoe down a river as the Northern Lights rippled in the background. The inscriptions in this design include Canada, Dollar, and a date mark. The Confederation Conferences design issued in 1964 honored the 100th anniversary of the first conference of Canadian territories to determine whether confederation and eventual independence from England was ideal. The first two conferences took place in 1864 in Charlottetown and Quebec roughly one month apart. The design on these coins offers a small insignia at the center with a French fleur de lis, English rose, Irish shamrock, and Scottish thistle. These coins have the same inscriptions, with the inclusion of Charlottetown, Quebec, and the dual dates of 1864 and 1964.
Canada Dollar Silver coins were issued from 1935 to 1967 with 80% silver content and 20% copper. Any Canada Dollars with silver content issued after 1967 were commemorative issues and not intended for circulation.
