How many dimes can make a dollar?

To understand more about this topic you must first know the definition of a dime. A dime is any coin worth 10 cents. It cannot be broken down into smaller units of money, although it can be made into other coins, such as the nickel and the quarter.


The US mint was established in 1792 by President George Washington when he signed legislation that allowed the United States to strike coins from precious metals.

The United States mint has been around longer than the fifty states of the United States.


Currently there are three coins that are made by the US mint: The dime which is worth ten cents; the nickel which is worth five cents; and the quarter which is worth 25 cents.

The quarter has always been a quarter since 1864 when Abraham Lincoln was president. At that time, the face value was 25 cents, but now it is still worth 25 cents even though it contains less silver than it did back then.
