What Are Dimes Made Of?
Dimes are primarily copper but also are made of nickel. To be precise, our modern-day dimes are 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel. It wasn’t always this way though! Before 1965, dimes were 90% silver and 10% copper. If you have 10,000,000 dimes ($1,000,000), you are holding 20,790,756 grams of copper and 1,889,244 grams of nickel in your hand.
