Hi Cindi,
Unfortunately these are common coins and the US ones are only worth more than face value if they are in pristine condition. The 1996 dime sounds like a minor mint error, but these often have weakness in some of the numbers and/or letters on them and it does not really increase their value unless it's completely missing and not just faint.
The Somalia coin is worth a couple of dollars. eBay would be your best bet for selling them, but honestly the price you would get at auction makes it really not worth the hassle of doing the work to list and ship them.
I hope this is helpful.
Thanks for the question! =)

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
