Arnprior Silver Dollar
In December 1955, the Royal Canadian Mint made up an order of 2,000 silver dollars for a firm in Arnprior, These coins had 2 and ½ water lines at the right end of the canoe. This was similar to the accidental disappearance of water lines on the versions from 1950-1951. The 1955 dollars caught the interest of many collectors and it was this version that led to the term Arnprior being applied to any dollar with an appearance of missing water lines.
