Canada, 1964 Prooflike Set
In 1964 Canada celebrated the 100th anniversary of Charlottetown by issuing a commemorative
Silver Dollar. In Canada they issued these silver dollars both for circulation and for collectors.
They are struck in 800 fine Silver and weigh 23.33 grams. You have the arms of
Charlottetown on the reverse and the bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
We are offering the mostly silver Prooflike set issued for collectors. You get the Silver Dollar,
Half Dollar, Quarter Dollar and Ten Cents plus the base metal 5c and 1c coins. Canada did not
strike Proof Sets, but something almost as good and they called them Prooflike. They come
sealed in a cellophane package, so you can see both sides of the coins without having to touch
them. In some sets some of the silver coins will have toned slightly, as silver always does.
This was one of the last large sized Canadian Silver Dollars to be issued in 1968 they went to
a much smaller size in nickel. Remember this 1964 Silver Prooflike Set is now 54 years old and
has the Queen on it.
