1965 Canadian Silver Dollar

1965 Canadian Silver Dollar

By Fingolfin | Miscellaneous Musings | 10 Oct 2020


I've always been interested in coin collecting since I was a little kid. I started with the simple penny books and enjoyed the thrill of searching for and finding the ones I need. As I got a little bit older I had a really nice collection of older silver dollars and half dollars that I got from my grandma, alas that collection was stolen and I'm left now with only the bare bones of what I used to have. Despite all that I do have a few pieces left and some with interesting stories.

I actually found this coin while helping my dad to clean out an abandoned house. It was sitting by itself on a shelf in an otherwise empty closet. Actually I found a few cool things in the house (A WWII German bayonet) but that doesn't really fit in with this post. I've always really liked the design of this coin and used to carry it around as my card protector when I played poker. Based on what I could look up it seems to have the following stats-

Fineness: 0.8000
Weight: 23.3276g
ASW: 0.6oz

I have always wanted to buy more but just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Maybe after sharing a bit more I'll finally take the plunge and look into buying something new for the collection. Right now I find myself adding more crypto and not silver. Until next time, hope you enjoyed.

Learned about crypto in 2016 and have been going down the rabbit hole ever since...
