This guide will tell you how much your Roosevelt Clad Dimes minted from 1965 to the present are worth.  The table below provides average coin values and prices based upon the condition of the coin.  

History of the Clad Roosevelt Dime

Between 1963 in 1965 the United States was experiencing a coin shortage. This was mainly due to the rising price of silver causing the intrinsic melt value of silver coins to be worth more than their face value.

In 1965, the United States began converting all of their silver coins to a copper nickel clad composition. John Sinnock's design of the Roosevelt dime remained unchanged. However,  the United States Mint continued to blame the coin shortage on coin collectors. Therefore from 1965 through 1967 they removed all mint marks from United States coins. Beginning in 1968, the mint resumed using mint marks to identify where the coins were made.

Market Analysis

Roosevelt dimes are still made for circulation by the United States Mint. The current coin is made with a copper and nickel clad alloy.  Up until 1964, dimes were made with 90% silver. If you want to get the most money for your Roosevelt clad dime collection, you need to sort them and organize them so the dealer can quickly see what you have.

Key Dates, Rarities and Varieties

In 1982 a die was made for a Roosevelt dime without the required "P" mint mark.

A "1982 No P Mint Mark" coin is worth considerable more than regular 1982 Philadelphia mint dimes.  As such, this coin is frequently counterfeit or altered from common 1982-P dimes.  Therefore, you should have the coin authenticated by a reputable coin dealer or third party grading service.
