1935-1967: Canadian dollars were struck for circulation from an alloy of 80% silver with
20% copper, each coin containing 0.6 troy ounces of pure silver. Most have the standard
voyageur design, although a few commemoratives have other designs.
1940-1944: Due to the second world war, no silver coins were issued.
From 1971: Dollars are specially struck brilliant uncirculated proof like .500 silver.
1980: I began my collection.
1981-present: Proof silver dollars are finished with cameo highlights.
1992-present: Sterling silver .925.
