History of 50% 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, composed of .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 1971, the mint started to produce 50% Silver Dollars. Issued until 1987, 50% Silver Dollars feature a beautiful portrait of a young Queen Elizabeth II.
