As one of the most diverse coin dealers in Atlanta for buying and selling gold and silver coins, we regularly purchase foreign coins that other Atlanta coin dealers may be unfamiliar with or may not know how to price accordingly. In particular, an increasing portion of our business has come from buying and selling Canadian silver coins, in the form of Canadian silver maple leaf coins and dimes, quarters, half dollars, and silver dollars minted prior to 1968.
For those familiar with U.S. silver coins, you may know that silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars minted in 1964 and earlier contain 90% silver content. U.S. silver dollars minted in 1935 and earlier also contain 90% silver. After 1964, the only U.S. minted coin for general circulation that contains silver is the Kennedy half dollar minted from 1965 – 1970. This differs from Canadian silver dollars, in that all dimes, quarters, half dollars, and silver dollars minted through 1967 contain 80% silver content. Some 1968 varieties also contain 50% silver, but these are relatively difficult to come by.
We have found that a good number of individuals in and around the metro Atlanta area have a collection of Canadian silver coins. A good bit of these folks previously lived near the Canadian border, or are Canadian themselves. After all, Atlanta is a large melting pot composed of individuals from all over the United States and beyond.
Up until recently, a good number of people have had a difficult time trying to find a coin dealer in Atlanta that is willing to buy their Canadian silver coins at competitive rates. We not only buy Canadian silver coins at extremely competitive rates, but we also sell Canadian silver coins, including proof and mint sets, at industry leading rates.
You don’t have to be Canadian to buy Canadian silver coins. In fact, Canadian silver coins are an excellent option for individuals that are looking to acquire recognizable silver coins at competitive prices. These coins can often be had for lower rates than U.S. junk silver coins, making them a nice option for individuals that are in the market to purchase silver bullion coins in the most cost effective manner.
