Best Answer

In 1960, Canadian 1 cent pieces ("pennies") were made of bronze, 5 cent pieces ("nickels") were made of nickel, and 10 cent pieces ("dimes"), 25 cent pieces ("quarters"), 50 cent pieces ("half dollars") and dollar coins were all composed of 80% silver (with, I believe, the balance being copper).
