Shiny, Gem Proof, 1971 US Dime

in LeoFinance •  3 months ago 

This is a US dime from 1971 minted in San Francisco, California. This dime does not contain any precious metals as the USA stopped using silver in it's coins in 1964.
This diem is made of about 92% copper and 8% nickel, which is known as "clad".

This dime is an uncirculated proof, which means both the coin and the dies used to stamp the coin were both highly polished before striking and it has not been in circulation since it was struck. It's like new! :)

This coin was minted in my birth year and was also given to me by @dfinney for my birthday.

Personally I like the US dime and the older ones are really cool.

If you are a collector or have been thinking about collecting coins or investing in precious metals and have any questions I'd be happy to answer them so just ask!

Have a great day.

I mean. I don't know what it is about your posts... but this seemed appropriate.

Not Silver? But it's still shiny.

I know, I almost didn't post it due to the...cladiness(?) of it but it is SOOOO shiny.

That is a wonderful way to remember your Birthday @summertooth!!😀
I always liked the Roosevelt dime, and a Proof makes it that much nicer my friend!!😀

It is cool to have a coin that was minted in my birth year that has not been circulated. @dfinney is the best!

Very cool...and that Oregon guy is alright too!! Have a good week my friend!!😀

Oh that is nice, I assume it has come from a proof set.

Yeah, you are probably right. I could not find mintage numbers for a 1971 s proof dime.
