Question
I found a 2010 Roosevelt dime. The back side of the dime is gold, not tarnished. The dime looks gold plated on one side. Is this worth anything? Thanks for your help!!!

Answer
Hi Beth,

If your coin is gold plated on one side, then that is something that would have happened after the coin left the mint, and would have no collector value.

However, if it is really a copper color, it is possible that one side of the coin blank did not get its outer coating.  If so, this could be worth $5 or more -- first hand examination by an expert would be required.  Try checking the ANA's website for listings of dealers in your area : http://www.money.org

I hope this helps,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
