1967 US Dime
1967 US Dime
(Thanks to Dave on Coinpeople for the info)(BTW I know the coin just says "One Dime" on it so it's possible you are unaware that a "Dime" is ten cents.) The ones dated 1964 and earlier are 90% silver. The ones after 1964 are basically identical to what we use today--we went to a cupronickel cladding over an inner layer of pure copper that year and haven't changed that, or the design, since. I frequently see 1965-1969 dimes (and later) in my change; the silver ones had just about disappeared by 1970 when I started collecting. The person pictured on the obverse is Franklin Delano Roosevelt, president from 1933-1945, who died in office shortly before the end of World War II. To summarize, any dime after 1965 is still current in circulation. Those before then are without fail worth two or three dollars today simply because of the silver content. (A question I hear even here is "why is the dime so small when it's worth two 'nickels'?" Well, because the dime used to be made out of silver, and the nickel never was, and we kept the size after we stopped doing so.) [Someone on this forum is going to jump on that so I'd better say this before they do: We once upon a time made silver "half dimes" but they were (appropriately) smaller than dimes...and that ended in the 1870s and we never called those "nickels."]
KINGDOM OF HAWAII, KALAKAUA I, 1883 ---DIME b
KINGDOM OF HAWAII, KALAKAUA I, 1883 ---DIME b
KALAKAUA I, KING of HAWAII: The son of a high chief, Kalakaua was a candidate to the throne in 1873 but lost the election to Lunalilo. When Lunalilo died the following year, the legislature then elected Kalakaua, who inaugurated a decidedly reactionary and pro-American reign. In 1874 he visited the United States, and in 1881 he took a trip around the world. Although he secured a somewhat favourable reciprocity treaty with the United States in 1876, he yielded in 1887 to demands to give the United States the exclusive right to enter Pearl Harbor and maintain a naval coaling and repair station there. There was an ever-increasing endeavour by King Kalakaua to restore the ancient Hawaiian social order with its customs and ideas of absolutism and divine right, but it was accompanied by extravagance, corruption, personal interference in politics, and fomentation of race feeling, until he was compelled to promulgate (1887) a new constitution providing for responsible ministerial government and other guarantees. The struggle continued, however, not only until the end of his reign (1891), during which there was an armed insurrection (1889) by the opposition, but even more hotly during the subsequent reign of his sister, Liliuokalani. Kalakaua died on a visit to the United States, amid rumours that he was about to sell his kingdom
