What is the silver content in a Canadian silver dollar?

Canadian coins were made of .925 silver and .075 copper from 1858 through 1919. Beginning in 1920, the silver content was reduced to .800 and a copper of .200. However, very few coins from 1920-1921 made it to circulation (these are rare). The 5 cent silver coin ceased minting in 1921. In 1967 a transition occurred, further reducing the silver content to .500 with .500 copper. Some of the 1967 coins are .800 silver and others are .500; I cannot tell how to precisely tell the difference except that the higher silver content coin has a noticeably different "ring" to it when dropped on a hard surface (try this with a silver coin vs. an alloy coin). In 1968 the last of the Canadian coins with .500 silver content were minted. After 1968 they are entirely alloy like the U.S. coins. To note, U.S. silver coins followed nearly the same phase-out of silver following 1964 which was the last year of 90% silver circulation coinage. In 1965 the dime and quarter went to a full clad composition with no silver while the half dollar went to a net 40% silver content through 1970. In 1971 the half dollar lost its silver and went to the same clad scheme as the lower coins.
