Neither of these coins would be considered a rare date for their series. So, in circulated condition, their value would be based only on the silver they contain. The dime is currently worth about 45 cents, and the half is worth about $2.25

Silver Australian coins were first issued in 1910 and were made from sterling silver which has a 92.5% silver content. This changed from 1946 onwards and the silver content was reduced to 50%. No Australian general circulation coin has had any silver content since 1966, except for the round 1966 50 cent coin. The silver content of the older predecimal coins possibly values the coins at more than face value, however, if the coins are in good condition, the collector value may be higher.

Roosevelt dimes dated 1946 to 1964 are 90% silver, so all of them are worth more than face value, but none are rare or scarce and circulated coins are mostly valued for the silver. A few coins do have slightly higher values because of lower mintage (1949 & 1949-S) but the value depends on the grade of the coins.

The coins are 90% silver and 10% copper.

There are no Australian coins in circulation with any silver content. The only Australian decimal coin to contain any silver was the round 1966 50 cent coin which was withdrawn from circulation in 1967 because the value of the silver in the coin was worth more than the coin. Predecimal Australian silver coins from 1910 to 1945 were made from sterling silver and predecimal Australian silver coins from 1946 to 1963 were made from 50% silver.

no copper-nickel UK coins were last silver in 1946
