I just dumped a huge jar of change to wrap. Thanks Suze Orman, for all this work. What is the exact date in the 60's when they stopped using silver? I'm finding some 65's and 66's, which tells me the date is probably 64. Is it the same for dimes, quarters, and halves?
64 was the last for dimes and quarters.
Not sure about the kennedy halfs
Ezzy, thanks for the link. This is eye-opening. Canadian coins were always something we hoped not to get stuck with, since they usually don't work in vending machines. So I've got a stash of them to go through, too.
I think you can tell by looking at the coins. The silver coins don't have the copper sandwiched between the layers.
