It depends on when it was minted. Modern dimes don't contain any silver, but up till 1964 all US dimes were made of an alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper.
When the price of silver shot up in the 1960s the Mint was forced to remove silver from circulating coins, so all circulating dimes and quarters dated 1965 and later, and halves and dollars dated 1971 and later, have no silver in them.
There is no silver in a 1990 US dime.
No, no US dimes dated 1976 contain any silver at all.
If the coin has any wear the value is for the silver, about $2.00
If it is a US dime, it isn't silver. Silver stopped being used in dimes after 1964, so any dime dated 1965 or later is struck in copper-nickel and are only worth face value.
If it's a US dime dated 1964 or before it's silver
1964 was the last year US dimes for general circulation had silver in them however, the silver dime lives on in the silver proof set series issued by the US Mint.
