What coins are worth money?

While the two most valuable coins on this list are coincidentally the rarest (between 20 and 40 specimens each of the 1943 bronze cent and 1944 steel cent are thought to exist), the order of which coins are most valuable doesn’t necessarily correspond with the order of rarity.

Were Dimes ever all copper?

The first United States dimes were minted in 1796 in Philadelphia. They were composed of approximately 89% silver and 11% copper and were larger than today’s dimes. As the price of silver rose over the decades, the mint was forced to shrink the size of the dimes from a diameter of 19 mm to their current size of 17.9 mm.

Do Dimes have copper in them?

A copper dime is a coin that lacks its outermost layer of metal, revealing the copper layer underneath. All dimes minted since 1965 are composed of a copper core with a copper-nickel blend applied over the surface to give them a silvery sheen.
