I’ve received traffic about dime because one of my posts apparently displays in the search results. 🙂
For your info — yes you, because you’re reading this — a dime is a 10 cents coin in the USA.
More info on Wikipedia.
Okay, I might sound like a whiney tourist here but why doesn’t America emboss numbers on their coins?
What is a penny? A dime? A nickel?
If not for the song Penny For Your Thoughts, I wouldn’t really remember the other official names for 1 cent, 5 cents, and 10 cents.
And the nickel is bigger than the dime! Wait, can I say “the nickel”, “the dime”?
Are there other countries that have their coins this way?
