Canada Charlottetown Dollar 1964
These coins contain 0.6 troy ounces of silver and that gives them their value. Look up the current price of silver at kitco.com.
There is talk on the Internet of 'dot' varieties of this coin which, supposedly, are a little more valuable than straight silver price. Our research turns up no such varieties.
If you can find a coin in pristine condition, a collector will probably pay a little more than silver value.
The coin in our picture looks pretty spiffy and, at first, you might think it would sell for more than silver price. But close inspection reveals a giant scratch on the Queen's neck. This scratch sends the value back down to silver-only.
This silver dollar commemorates the 1864 Canadian Confederation meetings held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec City, Quebec. The circular emblem features the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose.
