Notes: 929 million 1964 Franklin dimes issued here at the (p) Philadelphia mint, all coins are 90% silver. Of those 929 million just 3.9 million are proof coins. 1964 was the last year the Roosevelt dime would be minted in 90% silver because of this the 1964 dime can be considered a date to remember and possibly a better date.

Like all Roosevelt dimes look for the Full Torch or FT, sometimes also listed as FB (full bands), on the coins reverse. This is the gold standard for this coin if you will.

Admin: Yes these are 90% silver, but this was the last year. It wasnt until 1965 that they removed silver from the all but the Half Dollars. So yes they are silver, and at the current spot prices the .0723 oz of pure silver is worth just over $2. So minimal the coin you are holding is worth no less than $2. Hope this helps, thanks for posting. Approved: May 4, 2024 6:53 pm





How much is a 1964 Dime worth?

In Average Circulated (AC) condition it's worth around $3.00, one in certified mint state (MS+) condition could bring as much as $20 at auction. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say Average Circulated, we mean in a similar condition to other coins circulated in 1964, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. *** [?].
