1979 D Roosevelt Dime
Coin Dealer Insight: Production dropped yet again in 1979 with just over 706 million dimes produced that year. However, the San Francisco mint apparently had a problem with a die which created the 1979 S "Filled S" (or 1979 S Type 1) error dime. Partway through production, the die was replaced which created the 1979 S "Clear S" (or 1979 S Type 2) dimes.
Value: Can usually be found and sold for somewhere between $0.12-$5.00 price dictated by condition, certification, and current demand. Other factors include location, inventory, and urgency of sale.
Estimated Value Based on Scale:
Production: 390,921,000 Roosevelt dimes were minted at the Denver mint in 1979.
Silver: This coin is 90% Silver with a silver weight of around 0 troy ounce pure silver. The other 10% is copper having no significant intrinsic value.
