US Coins

dimeThe dime is a US coin worth ten cents. Ten dimes make a dollar. One dime can be written 10¢ or $0.10.

Dimes are made out of an alloy (a mixture of metals) of 91.67 percent copper and 8.33 percent nickel (before 1965, the dime was made out of silver). The dime has a edge with 118 ridges. This coin is 17.91 mm in diameter and is 1.35 mm thick - it is the smallest, thinnest and lightest US coin.

The Roosevelt dime has been minted since 1946, when it replaced the Liberty Head dime.

DIMES IN CIRCULATION:

The front (obverse) of the dime pictures a left-facing profile of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the only four-term President of the United States of America. This coin was was minted the year after the death of President Roosevelt; it was designed by John Ray Sinnock, the US Mint's Chief Engraver at the time.

The front reads, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the year the coin was minted. The small initial over the date is the mint mark, denoting the location of the US mint that produced the coin (D means Denver, Colorado, S means San Francisco, California, and P means Philadelphia, Pennsylvania).

dime reverse
The back (reverse) of the dime pictures a torch with an olive branch to the left and an oak branch to the right.

The back reads, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (which means, "Out of many, one"), and "ONE DIME."
