If you mean, are dimes *attracted* to a magnet, the answers

are No for US dimes and Yes for Canadian dimes.

American dimes are made of copper and a small amount of nickel.

While the metal nickel is in fact attracted to a magnet there's not

enough (only about 8.3%) in an American dime to show any

attraction.

Canadian dimes were made of pure nickel up till the end of the

1990s, and have been made of steel since then. Both of these metals

are strongly attracted to a magnet.
