2011-D Dime

Do you have a dime and want to know its value? Leave a comment

The ongoing quest to find one of every coin every made in my change , even the common ones, continues with this dime. I got the Pennsylvania version late June last year and a little over a year passed when this Denver version showed up in my change. Noticed it because it was very shiny.


I have found nearly all the circulated dimes from 1965-2012 with the following exceptions.
  • 2007-D
  • 2009-D
  • 2012-P
  • 2012-D 
There is some reasons for this like 2009-D was a very low mintage and 2012 is very new. Strangely though 2007 dimes were made in the billions so I should have at least one but either they are not circulating well or I have not noticed any.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / United States
Year: 2011 P
Mintage: 754,000,000 (estimated )
Metal: 91.67% Copper, 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.10  in AU-50

Still have not found a 2009 nickel

Do you have a U.S. dime and want to know its value? Leave a comment / question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Am i more likely to find a coin from where it was made the closer i am to that place. Ex: if i move closer to denver will i be more likely to find a coin with the mint mark D in change.

In my experience yes.
From what I know from Colorado and west coast collectors they find D and S coins more often then P coins.

Each year and type is different but first they circulate close to the mint and slowly start to expand.

I love when I'm on my iPhone and it tries to make a phone number out of other numbers. For instance, the 1965-2012 you included in the post. I tried clicking it because I thought it was a link and my phone asked me if I wanted to call that number. Stuff like that takes the "smart" out of smart phone. To make this coin related I ususally find both mint marks of circulatind coins that same year except the 2009 nickels, dimes, cents, and state/territory/park quarters.

Whoops typo. I meant circulated.

--That's why I have an Android,, it's slightly smarter.
Although iPhone does have better coin apps.

--Are you closer to the middle of Philly and Denver? I think the closer you are to the center of America the more even the change gets.

I'm still the "me." said...

I live in eastern Nebraska, so just about right in the middle :p but I'm always searched for Philly mint.

Well you are much closer to Denver, I would expect 90% of coins there to be D.

I live right on the east coast. Maybe there's not much of a need for new coins in NYC because of all of the foreign, old, and error coins. Like I said to Pockets O'Change too many people around here must collect because I haven't been getting many coins worth keeping excluding pre-1982 Lincoln Cents and 1964 nickels, of course. Hopefully it's just temporary and I'll start getting more coins and better coins like I did last year.

--Oh yes, I always forget.

Nope, the city gets so many new coins. They did a story a few years back that NY-Transit needed so many $1 coins that they emptied the Fed vaults of the Susan B. Anthony's and most were covered in rat "waste". Yet they still sent them to NYC, what a stereotype.

I did find a narrow and wide rim that year.

Dr. Math said...

Hahaha just joking. I know you guys go through tons of coins with millions of people. It's pretty disgusting to think that some of my Anthony Dollars could've been covered in rat waste at some point. I saw your post on the Anthony's nice find! I got an Anthony Dollar as a quarter last month. Nothing special, but I did make $0.75.

Man said...

I have to redo that with better pictures. That was 2005 and my picture skills were bad.

Dr. Math said...

Sounds like a good idea. A close up of the date and rim on both versions to show the differences would be nice.
