The date on the image can be different from the year selected.

For some unaccountable reason, demand for the 1947 dollars fell off sharply. Calgary, St. John, Regina, and Vancouver, made no request for the dollars of this year.

All 1947 silver dollar coins with a maple leaf after the date were struck in 1948 early in the year. Because the King was no longer Emperor of India, the inscription on the coins had to be changed. Master dies and working punches for the 1948 pieces were not at hand until late in the year.

1 dollar 1947 prices and values

The value of a Canadian coin depends on several factors such as quality and wear, supply and demand, rarity, finish and more. The melt and minimum value of a 1 dollar 1947 is $23.98 CAD.
