leave the loonies and toonies alone...lots of the rest, probably long gone from circulation, is good silver and copper

use silver recyclers to help

and the nickles are to 'collect for', they're nearly all nickel...

loonies and toonies, idk, destroyed the spelling are circulated clad coinage...the nickels are better to collect than US nickels, they are higher percentage nickel in them and the cents are great to collect also, great source of bronze / brass, whatever...and all the rest, use these guys:

to help you figure out the rest

hope this helps...i lose people with my shorthand...

I've got a set of the Canadian coins highlighting the animals as EO pictured. They're an attractive set incased in a proprietary case ranging from small to large denominations.

Yep it's still legal tender . The older they are the higher the silver content.

Certainly not a ton but I ain't in the bottom 95%. Back in ,73 an old family friend wanted to buy my some of my silver coins to melt down to make a silver bell for a 25th anniversary gift. He was pissed as all get out when I said no.
I do like looking at the early coins from the different provinces and they are mostly .925.
