Could you explain what you mean? If you want a basic definition, it's a 10 cent coin about the same size as a U.S. dime. Most bear the image of the famous schooner "Old Bluenose" on the obverse. The reverse carries the monarch's picture, Elizabeth II since 1953.

If taken from circulation, a Canadian dime is worth about 9 cents U.S. at current exchange rates.

What about a 1988 dime that has orchid like flowers on the back instead of the schooner
