The First U.S. Dimes

The United States Mint began operations in 1792 with experimental strikes of a limited number of coins. It did not issue a full range of authorized denominations until 1796 – the year the first dimes were put into circulation. This display features three 1796 and 1797 dimes showing the small eagle variety issued only in those two years – thus representing the first regular-issue dimes of the United States.
