Canadian Silver 25 Cent Coin The Canadian Silver 25 Cent coin came about as a result of the creation of the Canadian Confederation and resulting formation of the Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867.

Responsibility for the banking system and creation of money now belonged to the central government. The very first silver 25 cent pieces were issued, along with 5, 10, and 50 cent denominations in 1870.

In Canada, the coin with the most frequently changed reverse side is the 25 cent piece. Most commemorative issues utilize the quarter.

Here are just a few of the most memorable Canadian Silver 25 Cent coin designs:
