Valuable Dimes That Can Make You Rich

Like other rare and valuable coins, these dimes have a low mintage (number of coins produced), are old (such as the 1894-S Barber Dime, which only had 24 coins made), or have errors in production (such as the 1968 No-S Roosevelt Dime Proof).

The 1894-S Barber Dime

This coin is one of the rarest and most valuable dimes, with only 24 produced. It can fetch up to $2 million in mint condition after selling for $1.9 million in 2018.

The 1916-D Mercury Dime

According to the NGC Price Guide, the 1916-D Mercury Dime can fetch up to $12,000 in circulated condition and $39,000 or more in certified mint. Thanks to the relatively high mintage numbers (compared to some valuable dimes on this list), you may have a better chance of finding one in circulation.

1968 No-S Roosevelt Dime Proof

This dime is valuable due to an error in production; it should have an S mint mark showing it was made in San Francisco. The 1968 No-S Roosevelt Dime is worth up to $31,000 (auction, 2015).

1860 Seated Liberty Dime

Another valuable dime is the 1860 Seated Liberty Dime. This dime was designed and engraved by Christian Gobrecht, featuring Lady Liberty seated on a rock holding a pole with a liberty cap on top.

The obverse also includes the inscription “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” which replaced the stars in the earlier versions, and there’s a date below Lady Liberty. The reverse contains the description “ONE DIME” with a wreath surrounding it. Examine these details to identify this valuable dime.
