Best Answer

Presuming that you are referring to US dimes issued between 1875 and 1964 (dimes older than 1875 had different weights and/or fineness), dimes weigh 2.50 grams and are 90% silver (the remaining 10% is copper). This means that the ASW (Actual Silver Weight) is 0.07234 troy ounces. Thus, it would require 14 dimes (this number is rounded up; the precise number is 13.8236 dimes) to have one troy ounce of silver.

It depends on the current price of silver. Old silver dimes contain about 1/14 of a troy ounce of silver, so if for example silver is $42/oz, a silver dime is worth about $3 so it would take 30 new dimes to buy an old one.

There is 283.495231 of ounces in Silver!

Silver coins dated before 1920 are sterling (.925%) silver. Dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes from 1920 - 1966 are all 80% silver by weight. An easy calculation to figure out the pure silver weight: Multiply .6 oz per dollar of coinage. Example: $10 of 1966 dimes would be .6 x 10 or 6 oz's of pure silver. Multiplying the total by today's price would give you "melt" value of the coins.
