What is a Canadian coin made of?

Answer

A modern Canadian coin is made of nickel-plated steel which contains a small amount of copper. Earlier versions during World War II were minted in copper-zinc, and then chrome and the nickel-plated steel were used before they returned again to nickel. Cupronickel was then used in 1982 before the coin makers finally settled on nickel-plated steel.
