The U.S. Silver Dime Melt Value Calculator, which is located below, will show you the total
silver value and total silver content of your U.S. Barber, Mercury, or Roosevelt 90% junk silver
dimes. Calculate by quantity, rolls of dimes, face value, or total weight. The silver dime calculator
will only figure what the silver in your dimes is worth (intrinsic value), and will not
determine any numismatic (collector) or base metal value.
Use the silver dime calculator to figure out how much the silver in your dimes is worth, or to
set a max bid on a silver dime auction based on its silver content melt value.
You might also try one of the many other calculators available from the drop-down menu above.
For a wider choice of silver coins, use the
U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator. You may also have use for the
Canadian Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator or the
Australian Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator.

How to use the U.S. Silver Dime Melt Value Calculator.
First decide what method you will be using to indicate the amount of U.S. 90% silver dimes to
calculate. You can enter your amounts either by the total quantity of silver dimes, the total
face value of your silver dimes, or by the total weight of your U.S. 90% silver dime collection.
You could also use a combination of methods depending on how your dimes are stored.
The first three options are for entering an exact count of U.S. 90% silver dimes. You can choose
from the Barber Silver Dime, the Mercury Silver Dime or the Roosevelt Silver Dime minted from
1946-1964. Use the text box to the right of each silver dime description (blue link) to enter a
number representing the total quantity of 90% silver dimes that you wish to know the silver melt
value of. As an alternative, you can simply click on the silver dime picture, or its link, to
increase the value in its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically update the Total
Silver Value (in red), whenever a change is made to the amounts in any of the text boxes.
The next option below is for entering the amount of U.S. 90% silver dimes by rolls of 50. This
has the same effect as entering a value of 50 in any of the single silver dime option text
boxes. This option is nice if you like to store your 90% dimes in rolls or coin tubes. If you
received your silver dimes already rolled, then be sure to inspect them to determine that they
are all of the 90% silver variety. If not, then your calculation will be inaccurate. This
calculator is only designed for measuring the silver melt value of U.S. 90% silver dimes minted
Your next five options are for entering your amounts by the face value of your 90% silver dimes.
There are $1, $10, $50, $100, and $1000 options each representing 10, 100, 500, 1,000, and 10,000
dimes respectively. This option works well if your 90% dimes are stored in canvas bags. You can
also use decimal values for partial bags. For example, a value of 1.5 entered into the $10 Face
Value Text Box would be equal to a $15 face value.
Your final four options allow you to calculate the melt value of your U.S. 90% silver dimes by
weighing them. You can choose to weigh by either ounces, pounds, grams, or kilograms. Just enter
a whole number or decimal representing the total weight in the appropriate weight text box. If
you are weighing your 90% silver dimes inside a container or bag, be sure to subtract the weight
of your container first. Do note that these are not Troy ounces or pounds. They are U.S.
standard ounces and pounds (a.k.a. Avoirdupois).
The Total Silver Value is computed based on the U.S. Dollar amount displayed in the Silver
Price text box. You could also use one of the other major world currencies available in the
drop-down menu located underneath the prices. The default price is updated frequently during normal
trading hours. The Silver Price can be changed to indicate how much you are wanting to pay per
ounce for the silver content in any lot of U.S. 90% silver dimes. This can help you in determining
the maximum bid you should submit for an online silver dime auction.
The U.S. silver dime calculator tallies total silver value and total silver content with respect
to the measure of silver contained in uncirculated silver dimes having no wear. If your dimes
have some wear from being circulated, they will not consist of as much silver. You might want to
include a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. A measure larger
than the default of 0 (zero), will decrease the total silver value and total silver weight
