Best Answer

Presuming that you are referring to US dimes issued between 1875 and 1964 (dimes older than 1875 had different weights and/or fineness), dimes weigh 2.50 grams and are 90% silver (the remaining 10% is copper). This means that the ASW (Actual Silver Weight) is 0.07234 troy ounces. Thus, it would require 14 dimes (this number is rounded up; the precise number is 13.8236 dimes) to have one troy ounce of silver.

US silver dimes, since 1873, contain .07234 oz of pure silver. However, except for certain collector coins, there is no silver in dimes minted from 1965 to the present .

14oz

Any combination of 90-percent silver U.S. coins which have a face value of US$1.00 contains 0.715 troy ounces of 99.9-percent silver (0.7234 troy ounces if uncirculated), except for the silver dollars (Morgan and Peace) which contain .7736 troy ounces of silver. In other words, a full troy ounce of 99.9-percent silver is contained in any combination of 90-percent silver U.S. coins which have a face value of US$1.40.Therefore, a roll of uncirculated 1964 dimes contains 3.617 ounces of pure Silver, while a roll of circulated 1964 dimes contains 3.575 ounces of pure silver.

it takes nearly 3 - 90% silver half dollars to make an oz of silver IF IF IF the coins are not worn down.. the least worn are the franklin and Kennedy halves the most worn are the walking liberties halves.. it can take up to 6 of them[WL's] if they are really.really worn to make an oz of silver! be careful as Midas Resources,Ted Anderson,and Alex jones claim 2 half dollars equal 1 oz of silver, which is not correct.

Each Kennedy half that was minted in '64 or earlier had .36 troy oz of silver meaning a little less than three would equal an ounce of silver which is running for 29.30 an ounce last i checked. <><><><> Half dollars made 1965-1970 contained only 40% silver, instead of the 90% of earlier coins, so it would take more coins. Half dollars made after 1970 contain no silver.
