1987 Canada Dollar

Have a Canada dollar coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

1987 saw the first Loonie issued and it was totally an accident. Okay not totally an accident the Canadian government did redesign the dollar coin to make it lighter, smaller, eleven-sided, and a different color. What they did not intend was to change the voyageur reverse of the previous year. Something happened to the master dies and they disappeared in transit. To thwart possible counterfeiters a new reverse design was used, the majestic loon.


The most common of all the loonies they flooded into circulation. They circulated along with the Canadian dollar bill until the dollar bill was withdrawn in June of 1989. Since then dozens of commemorative designs were issued for circulation and collectors.

Currently the new 2012 Canadian dollars have laser etching and a new composition causing troubles in the vending machine industry. Still globally the Canada dollar is doing great and is still higher than the American dollar.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar / Canada
Year: 1987
Mintage: 205,405,000
Metal: Aureate-Bronze Plated Nickel: 91.5% Nickel, 8.5% Bronze
Value: $1.03 in Very-Fine

Hello, I have a 1987 Canadian dollar with a loon, and a 1996 two dollar with a polar bear. Are these coins worth more than face value? Thanks.

Hello. I know someone who has a sheet of 40 uncut canadian dollar bills ordered straight from the mint the year they took them out of circulation, and I was wondering what they'd be worth.

I have a Canadian dollar dated 1867-1992. What is the value of this coin. Thanks

Linda Joy said...

I have emptied out a can of assorted Canadian coins. I am not sure what dates to save. Does anyone know what dates are valuable to save or cash in. Thanks in advance.

...assorted Canadian coins. I am not sure what dates to save. Does anyone know what dates are valuable to save or cash in.
--Most 1991 coins have extra value, any 1968 or older coins also are keepers.

Anything 1969 or older that does not have an error is generally face value.
