The Canadian silver dollar comes in many varieties throughout its years of production by the Royal Canadian Mint. Many types of this dollar are not rare and make a good starting point for those who are new to collecting silver dollars. These coins were produced from 1935 to date and are popular with collectors of foreign coins.
Most Canadian silver dollars from 1935 to 1966 are trading just above silver's melt value, which makes it an easy coin for collectors to get for $20 to $25 (U.S). Because of melting trends, there are fewer brilliant uncirculated silver dollars available for collectors. The 2009 silver dollar issue is valued at about $50 U.S.
