Presuming that you are referring to US dimes issued between 1875
and 1964 (dimes older than 1875 had different weights and/or
fineness), dimes weigh 2.50 grams and are 90% silver (the remaining
10% is copper). This means that the ASW (Actual Silver Weight) is
0.07234 troy ounces. Thus, it would require **14 dimes** (this
number is rounded up; the precise number is **13.8236 dimes**)
to have one troy ounce of silver.

### How many oz of silver in roll of 1964 dimes?

Any combination of 90-percent silver U.S. coins which have a
face value of US$1.00 contains 0.715 troy ounces of 99.9-percent
silver (0.7234 troy ounces if uncirculated), except for the silver
dollars (Morgan and Peace) which contain .7736 troy ounces of
silver. In other words, a full troy ounce of 99.9-percent silver is
contained in any combination of 90-percent silver U.S. coins which
have a face value of US$1.40.
Therefore, a roll of uncirculated 1964 dimes contains
3.617 ounces of pure Silver, while a roll of circulated 1964
dimes contains 3.575 ounces of pure silver.
