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
Anything dated before 1965 is made of silver and currently at least worth over a dollar.
Unless they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition (in which case they may be worth half a dollar or so), they are worth no more than ten cents.
they were made that way
Assuming that pennies means cents (why?) then yes.
No, dimes dated 1965 and later are not silver and unless in mint packaging are only worth 10 cents.
One kilogram is about 2.2 pounds. Therefore, a kilogram of dimes is worth more than twice than a pound of dimes.
3 cents. It's an ordinary penny that was plated. The US has never made silver cents. Among other things they would have been worth more than dimes!
My two cents is worth more than a million dollars.
There were over 856,000,000 of these dimes produced, assuming you don't have an error coin of some kind, these dimes are worth only ten cents, they are struck on cupro-nickel blanks just like dimes today are minted with and are not silver or any other metal worth more than face value.
A kilogram is about 2.2 pounds , a kg. of dimes would be worth 2.2 times more than a lb.
If you got it from change, no. If it has the mintmark "S" it's worth more than 25 cents.
Since 1 kilogram is more than 1 pound (about 2.2 pounds), you can be quite certain that there will be more dimes in a kilogram.
1 cent. It's plated. Think about it for a few seconds - pennies are larger than dimes, so a silver penny would be worth more than 10 cents!
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.
10 cents for the copper-nickel coin underneath and about a penny or 2 for the gold plating. The US never minted gold dimes - they'd be worth A LOT more than 10 cents, after all!
2 quarters,4 dimes, and 3 pennies
The U.S. has never made silver cents. For one thing they'd be worth more than dimes! Your coin has been plated for use in jewelry or something similar. It's only worth 1¢.
Your question should really be "How many nickels are 3 dimes worth?". A nickel is 5 cents and 3 dimes are 30 cents, which is the same as 6 nickels (30 / 6) As stated, a nickel can't "fit into" a dime because a dime is smaller than a nickel :)
because there is enough coins that equal more than 5 cents
10 cents, because it's not gold; it's plated. The U.S. and Canada never minted gold dimes - they'd be worth far more than their face value because gold is so much more expensive than silver.
None have silver or are worth more than 25 cents.
All US silver quarters are worth more than face value.
Yes, wider, thicker, and heavier.
It's called a Roosevelt dime rather than a liberty dime, and it's worth 10 cents for the copper-nickel coin underneath and about a penny or 2 for the gold plating. The US never minted gold dimes - they'd be worth A LOT more than 10 cents, after all!
Most are worth five cents. Five cents in 1963 was, of course, worth much more than it is today after decades of inflation.
Originally, a cent had 1 cent's worth of copper, a nickel 5 cents' worth of nickel, and a dime 10 cents' worth of silver. Because the same weight of each metal was worth a different amount, the coins' sizes had to be different in order to match weights and values. For example, silver was (and still is) worth a lot more per ounce than copper, so a dime could have a lot less metal in it but be worth far more than a copper cent. - - - - - - - - Even though the monetary value of coins no longer represents the value of their metal content, the traditional coin sizes have been maintained. It's because these coins originally were made of other metals so that their intrinsic (i.e. melt) value was approximately equal to their face value. In 1964 silver was removed from dimes and quarters but the coins were kept the same sizes so they'd continue to work in vending machines, coin sorters, etc. There's more information at the Related Question linked below. - - - - - - - - Because that is what they were worth in the material they were made of, and nickel metal is cheaper than the metal they use for dimes. - - - - - - - - When dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes were made of silver, half dimes made of silver were smaller than dimes because they were half the weight. At that time cents were about the size of half-dollars and half cents were the size of nickels.
