Q. Is there a general rule on what coins I should send you? How do I know my coins contain silver?
 
A. The best way to know if your Canadian coins are silver is to try to pick them up with a magnet. If they stick, they are not silver. This works for dimes, quarters, fifty cents and dollars.
 
Canadian circulated coins that contain silver are as follows:
 
Dollars from 1967 and older
Half dollars from 1967 and older
Quarters from 1968 and older (1968 that do not stick to magnets)
Dimes from 1968 and older (1968 that do not stick to magnets)
 
American circulated coins that contain silver are as follows:
 
Dollars, half dollars, quarters, dimes from 1964 and older
Half dollars from John F. Kennedy from 1970 and older
