About Silver Dimes

America's smallest and thinnest coin is also one of the nation's oldest. In 1792, the Coinage Act instituted silver dimes, a coin worth one-tenth the value of a silver dollar. Franklin Roosevelt was the first person to appear on the U.S. silver dime after many symbolic versions of Lady Liberty had been used. The first silver Roosevelt dime circulated in 1945, shortly after the death of the 32nd President. Roosevelt founded the March of Dimes in 1938 to eradicate polio, a disease that left him paralyzed from the waist down since the age of 39. Roosevelt's profile is still on the obverse side of the dime, although the ten-cent pieces have not been minted with silver since 1964. That is why pre-1964 dimes are so valuable; they are worth the market price of silver. Numismatists count on reliable eBay sellers to offer thousands of authentic silver dimes, from rolls of modern coins to the Draped Bust dime of 1796.
