1968-1976 - Elizabeth II - Canadian Nickel Dollar

The Voyageur Dollar was struck for circulation from 1935 through 1986. Until 1968, the coin was composed of 80% silver. Beginning in 1968, following the 1967 special Canadian centennial series, which included a new commemorative dollar, the Voyageur Dollar series resumed. A smaller, nickel version for general circulation was struck from 1968 through 1986. In 1970, 1971, 1973, and 1974, the series was interrupted for circulating commemorative nickel dollars. Circulating commemorative nickel dollars were struck again in 1982 and 1984, but the Voyageur dollar was also produced. It was struck last for circulation in 1986 and for collectors in 1987. In 1987, the coin was replaced by the loonie.
