1794 to 1873 Half Dimes

The Half Dime is a silver coin, valued at five cents, formerly minted in the United States. The denomination was one of the original coins first authorized in 1792, and production began in 1794. These coins were much smaller than dimes, in diameter and thickness. With the introduction of the copper-nickel five-cent pieces half dimes were discontinued in 1873.

The following types of half dimes were produced by the United States Mint:

1831 Capped Bust Dime      1831 Capped Bust Dime reverse

1831 Capped Bust Half Dime

1854 Seated Liberty Half Dime 1854 Seated Liberty Half Dime

This 1854 Seated Liberty Half Dime recently sold on eBay for only $13.38
