**How many ridges on a dime?**

According to the U.S. Mint, there are 118 ridges on a dime. Ridges, also called grooves, are a physical security feature that makes dimes difficult to counterfeit.

When dimes were made from silver, the reeded ridges also helped prevent coin clipping, which is a form of fraud. What is coin clipping, and how do ridges deter this fraudulent practice? Imagine that you have a bucket full of silver dimes. While each dime is worth 10 cents, the metal is also valuable.

By shaving off a small amount of the silver from each coin in the bucket, a scammer could amass a sizeable amount of valuable silver to sell for scrap. The preferred target of silver scrapers has always been the edges of coins. It is much easier, in comparison, to notice if the face or back of a coin has been scraped. We would be much more likely to see if someone had defaced President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s face than the edge of the dime!

**What are dimes made of?**

Dimes are primarily copper but also are made of nickel. To be precise, the composition of modern-day dimes is 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel. It wasn’t always this way, though!

If you prefer to work in pounds, that’s 0.917 pounds of copper and 0.083 pounds of nickel.

What hasn’t changed is that dimes are still worth 10 cents, even though they are no longer made from silver.

**Are dimes magnetic?**

No, dimes are not magnetic, even though they are made from a nickel-copper alloy.

Nickel-copper alloys are only magnetic when the nickel content exceeds 56%. Since dimes are only 8.33% nickel, they are not magnetic.
