“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” – George Bernard Shaw. Why Copper Bullion ~~~ Interview with Silver Bullion Producer Market Harmony Passive Income blog
I thought I'd add the response to my question about the 1968 dimes and quarters to this thread:
This topic comes up time to time. He are the facts:
All 1966 and earlier Canadian coins are 80% silver. Actually, pre-1920 are sterling, but that's another matter. In 1967 they changed the composition of just the dime and quarter midway through the year from 80% to 50%. These are indistiguishable and dealers typically average out '67 quarters and dimes to "65%" silver by weight. In mid-1968 the composition was once again reduced from 50% to nothing. To differentiate these coins is extremely simple - just use a magnet. The pure nickel ones will stick and the 50% silver ones will not.
