Throughout the history of the US dime, the vast majority of the coins issued had 90% silver. Prior to the 1837 introduction of the popular Seated Liberty dime design in 1837, the US dime was just under 90% silver at 89.24% silver. From 1837 to 1964, the US dime had exactly 90% silver content. Today, 90% Silver Dimes are available to you in a $1 Face Value allotment online at Silver.com.

There have been a total of six official design programs for the US dime. The first two design programs, Draped Bust and Capped Bust Liberty, were available for a combined 31 years from 1796 to 1837. Prior to the modern era, the longest-running design was the Seated Liberty image used across various US denominations. Created by Christian Gobrecht, this image was on the coin for 55 years from 1837 to 1892. Eventually replaced by the Barber Coinage, the Seated Liberty design was the longest-running in the program’s history until 2002 when the Roosevelt Dime design surpassed its longevity.
