== == The WWII years were high production years for U.S. coins. Just about anything from these years -- pennies, nickels, dimes, etc. -- are considered common (to collectors). However, your dimes are made out of silver, so they will always have a value for the silver they contain. As of 10/2008 that value is about 90 cents apiece.
Sorry, the U.S. did not produce any silver dimes dated 1986. The coin is face value.
Canadian dimes dated 1920-1967 contain 80% silver and have a current melt value of about $1.20.
All circulation dimes dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel, not silver.
All circulating dimes dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel, not silver.
All circulating dimes dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel and are only worth face value. The only circulating dimes that contain silver are dated 1964 and earlier.
Despite the condition, dimes dated 1964 are so common that there's generally little to no collector value. Being that '64 was the last year for silver dimes, most were hoarded, resulting in a surplus of uncirculated specimens. Based on silver prices as of 23 May 2016, one roll of silver dimes has a melt value of $59.39.
There is no such thing (well, there are a few records of '65 dimes being struck on silver planchets) the last silver dime was dated 1964, all 1965 dimes are copper-nickel.
The US didn't make any silver coins in 1979. The last circulating silver dimes and quarters were dated 1964, and the last silver halves made for circulation were dated 1969.
Unless it's silver it's worth 10 cents. D and P mintmarks are not silver.
No such coin exists. Silver dimes were produced for circulation dated 1964 and earlier. Silver proof sets started being sold to collectors starting in 1992. There is no 1985 dated silver dime.
The US never made pure silver dimes. Silver by itself is too soft for use in circulating coins. Dimes dated 1964 and earlier are made of a .900 fine alloy of silver and copper.
Circulating dimes and quarters dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel rather than silver, so they have no extra value.
All 3 have the same retail values of $1.00-$1.50 depending on the grade
Yes. All silver dimes are worth at least $2.50 for their silver content. This value will change as the value of silver changes.
All dimes from 1960 to 1970 are worth at least 10 cents. Dimes from 1960 to 1964 are worth at least $2 for there silver content. Dimes dated 1965 to 1970 are only worth face value unless they are uncirculated.
There is no such thing as a 1968 Liberty dime. Winged Liberty (Mercury) dimes stopped being minted in the mid-1940s. All 1968 dimes are Roosevelt Dimes, not silver, not rare, and are worth simply 10 cents unless in proof condition.
1960 is a very common date for these dimes. Its value will only be for the silver it contains -- as of 6/2012 about $1.90
Any circulating US dime dated before 1965 is made of silver and is at least worth its melt value. Earlier designs of dimes such as the Mercury and Barber for the most part have some additional collector value.
Dimes dated 1965 and later are worth 10 cents if they came from change. Dimes dated 1964 and earlier are worth at least $1 for the silver they contain but many are worth much more than that as collectibles. You have to know their dates and mint marks though. If you have specific coins to value, please post new questions, one per date and mint mark.
1941 Mercury Head dimes are common date coins. Most are only valued for the silver. Today it's $1.35.
There are no US dimes dated 1812.
Roosevelt dimes dated 1946 to 1964 are 90% silver, so all of them are worth more than face value, but none are rare or scarce and circulated coins are mostly valued for the silver. A few coins do have slightly higher values because of lower mintage (1949 & 1949-S) but the value depends on the grade of the coins.
Please check again and post a new question. All dimes dated 1946 and later carry a picture of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and all dimes minted for circulation since 1965 are made of copper-nickel, not silver.
If it appears to be silver silver, it was plated outside the US mint. The U.S. never struck cents in silver. My high school physics class made silver-plated pennies and copper-plated dimes. The alteration makes it worth face value.
No, the value depends on the purity of silver, which coins you are talking about and the silver spot price. Currently, all US 90% silver coins (quarters, dimes and half dollars dated 1964 and before) are worth in melt value about 21 times face value. The percentage varies if you are talking about 40% silver half dollars (dated 1965-1970) and 35% silver war nickels (nickels dated 1942-1945 with a large mintmark over the Monticello). Of course, if silver were to go back up, they'd be worth more times face value. If silver drops, they'd be worth less than 21 times face value.
