At what year did they stop putting silver into the Canadian coins?  I know some of the older coins people seem to be buying for it's silver content ... doesn't anyone know anymore info on this topic?

Is it worth trying to sell coins from like the 1930's and 1940's?

Up through 1919, Canadian "silver" coins where 92.5% silver.   From 1920 through 1967, they were 80% silver.  There are some 10 cent and 25 cent pieces from 1967 and 1968 that are 50% silver.

This makes me want to goto the bank and buy a bunch of rolled quarter and dimes to see if I can find some of the older coins to then resell them for the silver content ... seems to be a way to make a little money - sure beats the lottery odds ... you are truley never spending money ... just trading ...
