Buy Dime Tubes and Protect your Dime Collection from Costly Damage
As the conscientious investor, you know that dirt and oil from fingers, chemicals, extreme temperatures and humidity may cause irreparable damage to the Dimes you have carefully collected. Accordingly, in recognition of the need for safe, convenient storage for our collectors’ Dimes and Dime-Sized coins, Provident Metals carries an array of Dime Tubes to safely store and preserve your precious coins.
The dime--originally called a disme--was authorized by the Coinage Act of 1792. Since that time, the dime has been issued in six varieties: the Draped Bust (1796–1807), Capped Bust (1809–1837), Seated Liberty (1837–1891), Barber (1892–1916), Winged Liberty Head-Mercury (1916–1945) and the Roosevelt (1946–present).
Each of these unique American Dimes should be handled with care, and by choosing the square, CoinSafe Dime Tubes available at Provident Metals, your coins are easily stacked, taking up minimal amounts of space, while being safeguarded against the harmful elements that depreciate their value.
The highly-recognizable Dime of today was designed soon after the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (by Chief Engraver John R. Sinnock) in 1945. Meant to replace the Mercury Dime, the coin was designed in part to commemorate Roosevelt’s founding of the March of Dimes--originally called the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis--which raised funds for polio research and to support victims of the disease. The dime features a handsome profile of the Nation’s thirty-second President on its obverse.
