Best Answer

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.
