Saving Your Silver Dimes

I am not a collector of rare coins. Although we have lots of coins in our girls' piggy bank, but those are for savings to be used or deposited in the bank for our kids savings accounts. Collecting coins in rare or valuable dates is a hobby to some people. They collect this for personal use, and others collect it as an investment. When the economy was slipping down, I've read about precious metals to be going strong. Gold buying was booming as well as silver coins.

About silver dimes, I often wonder how you can determine if your dime is among the rare ones, dating to years and years ago. I know there is a way of knowing it even though we are not experts. Accordingly, one should look into their mint marks, dates, the series and so on. It seems like this is very interesting. I will try to check online about how to determine if you have a rare coin and then check some of the dimes and other coins we have at home. Who knows I will be able to find a rare silver dime, which could be saved and use later on when it matures and its value is high.

My husband's dad when he was alive he collected some silver dimes and he had a bunch of them collected. And because of that, I kind of know which is which. They are very important and valuable.

I'm not a collector of any kind of coins either. I would love too if they are inexpensive.
