The silver melt value of the dimes are about $2 each and the quarter melt value is about $5.45 so the scrap melt value would be about $11.45.

Dimes minted in 1965 and after have a melt value of slightly over one cent depending on the metals market values. Dimes minted before 1965 have a melt value of about $1.22 depending upon the metals market values. These values are on November 4, 2017.

In US dollars it has a melt value of $1.37. It is illegal to melt these coins for the metal they contain.

A 1966 Canadian quarter is worth $5.67 USD/CAD at the time of writing in silver melt value.

Currently about $4 melt value. The value will rise depending on the date, condition, and mintmark. Silver dimes were made until 1965.

Its face value is 5 cents, but the melt value of a 1955-1981 Canadian nickel is $0.09 so the melt value is 4 cents more than the face value of the coin5 cents. It's not rare, and many are still in circulation.

1901 dimes are barber dimes, not mercury dimes. A lot of value comes from the condition, well worn coins might only really be worth melt value, while mint-state coins are worth quite a bit more.

Despite the condition, dimes dated 1964 are so common that there's generally little to no collector value. Being that '64 was the last year for silver dimes, most were hoarded, resulting in a surplus of uncirculated specimens. Based on silver prices as of 23 May 2016, one roll of silver dimes has a melt value of $59.39.

Please be more descriptive. Include the type and series of the coin.

At 50 dimes to a $5 roll, with a current melt value of about $2.20 per dime, that makes a roll worth $110 (as of 10 January 2013).

For many years up till 1967 Canadian half dollars were struck in 80% silver. That gives them a melt value of at least $6-7 at the price of silver as of late 2010. As part of the Centennial celebration, all 1967 coins carry images of iconic Canadian animals, which adds slightly to their collector value. As of 12/2010, some dealers are selling nice circulated "howling wolf" halves for $8, and uncirculated ones for as much as $13.

In the US, it is illegal to melt down nickels ( and technically half dimes, but the collector value of half dimes exceed their melt value) and pennies. All other denominations can be melted, though, in the current market, the only legal to melt coins that would bring a profit if melted down would be the silver coins which can easily be resold on the open market for a higher profit just selling the coins to investors than paying someone to refine the silver.

In general, the earlier dates are less common and more valuable than later years. Most dimes before the 1930s have some premium. Coins from WWII generally sell for around melt value.

It is FDR on the dime, not Eisenhower. All Roosevelt dimes are common and only worth silver melt value. At the time of writing it is around $2.25 or so in silver.

I deal typically with melt value, your coin is worth about $1.81 melt value with 80% silver. However, you may want to check this coin on Ebay coins to see if it is worth more as a collectible.

Roosevelt Dimes were minted from 1946 to the present. They were minted at Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and West Point. The value of any one dime will depend on date minted, place minted, and condition of the coin. Dimes dated 1946 to 1964 were made of 90% silver so at a minimum they're worth their silver melt value, and possibly more depending on condition. As of 04/2011 the melt value is around $2.50 to $3.00 depending on the buyer. All circulating dimes dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel so they have no extra value unless they're in uncirculated condition or were made for proof sets.

It would be illegal to melt them to find out!

A 1965 quarter has 0.15 oz. of pure silver in it, so if you want to know the melt value of it, simply multiply .15 by the silver spot price. For example, if the spot price is US$18 oz., your 1920-1966 Canadian quarter is worth about $2.70 in melt value.

Yes. They were made of 90% silver and 10% copper. Due to the silver they have a melt value of around $2.50. The total silver weight is 2.25 grams.

Don't do it! Chances are you'll melt at least a few coins(and maybe alot) that are worth many times their value in silver. If you want to sell put them up on eBay as small lots and they will still sell for slightly more than their silver value. If you sell them to a melter you'll get maybe 50% of their value as silver cause when you melt them you'll lose alot of metal. contact me at if you want to arrange a sale.

The current (June 2017) melt value for it is 1.8 cents, and that's in US dollars.

1941 is a common date for mercury dimes. If in circulated condition it is worth about $2 in silver melt. If uncirculated it might be worth $3-5 depending on condition.

1962 is a common date for Roosevelt dimes. Like all dimes, quarters, and half dollars made up till 1964 these coins were are made of 90% silver and 10% copper which gives them a melt value of about 0.072 times the current price of silver. A dealer will pay half to 2/3 of that amount.
