World Proof Silver Crowns & Other Coins

Most countries stopped using silver coins around the time of the first world war. Britain, for example, reduced the silver content of its silver coins from 92.5% (sterling silver), after 1919, and further reduced this again after 1946 to zero, so that no British coins dated after 1946 were issued for circulation containing any silver. All silver coloured coins for circulation are now made from cupro-nickel, which as its name infers is an alloy of copper and nickel.

Crown Sized & Other Sizes
On this page, we have listed silver proof coins of all sizes, not just crown or dollar sized coins. The diameter of each coin is shown is the "Diam" column in millimetres.

Commemoratives & Collectors' Issues
Fortunately since about the mid 1960's, some countries have taken to issuing special commemorative coins for sale to collectors, and these have included many silver proof coins.

Bargain Prices
Many of the coins we list on this page are offered at below the original issue price, and therefore represent remarkable value for the patient collector.
