How many inches in a us dime?
US coins are measured in metric units. Current US dimes are 1 mm thick, 17.9 mm in diameter, and weigh 2.27 gm.
I do not know the diameter of a US dime and, to be honest, do not care. However, for the benefit users of Answers.com, firstly, not everyone knows the size of a dime and secondly I do not for a moment believe a US coin would be 18 centimetres = 7 inches (approx) in diameter! <><><>><>><> 18 centimeters equals approximately 7.09 inches. My hand is of average size and it is about 18cm long.
Franklin Roosevelt is on the obverse side of the dime. As of 2009 Franklin D Roosevelt Try asking this question with a year behind it to get a more accurate answer, such as: Who was on the US dime in 1943? Or go to the question 'Who is on the dime?' This has a list of all the US dimes from 1796-current date.
