###### Asked in US Coins

### Why are nickels and pennies smooth around the edges and quarters and dimes aren't?

The ridges on the edges of coins are called "reeds". Many years
ago when quarters, dimes, and half dollars had silver in them,
people would shave the edges, sell the silver, and still use the
shaved coin for the face value of the coin. The mint added reeds so
it could easily be determined if the coin was shaved or not.
