Roosevelt dimes have been in production since 1946, and this long-running series is generally affordable – most dates are easily obtainable in circulated and typical uncirculated grades. However, there are several Roosevelt dimes that are relatively scarce and are worth a pretty penny. Even better? With enough looking, these valuable Roosevelt dimes can be found in circulation.
Here’s a rundown of the 4 valuable Roosevelt dimes you should keep your eyes out for in pocket change and rolls:
#1 — 1964 Copper-Nickel Clad Roosevelt Dime
This transitional error coin was struck when the United States Mint was moving from the production of 90% silver Roosevelt dimes to making the ten-cent coin from copper-nickel clad. The 1964 clad Roosevelt dime is a rare coin with only a handful of specimens, and these are worth four figures or more. How do you tell a 1964 clad dime from a regular 90% silver 1964 dime? Weigh it! A 1964 clad dime weighs 2.27 grams (more or less).
