These coins are worth so much money because they are rare. That means it might not be likely that it is in your coin jar.

That gives you and everyone you share this post with an advantage.
The dime you are looking for was minted back in 1894. It is known as the 1894-S Barber Dime. And it is worth a lot more than the ten cents listed as face value. It is worth close to two million.
The Barber Dime isn’t just worth a lot, it has a million-dollar history too. Back in 1894, John Daggett, the San Francisco Mint superintendent decided to create 24 special dimes. He gave his seven best friends three of these coins and the last three went to his youngest daughter. While he told his daughter to save the coins until she was older, she didn’t listen to her daddy. He was always telling her what to do so she got a little defiant and went out and bought some ice cream with one of the dimes.
Only about nine 1894-S Barber Dimes are still in existence to this day. And two of them are rumored to be in circulation just waiting to be discover.
Other Barber dimes are worth money, but only about $29 to $600. The ones that were specially minted are worth close to $2 million.
If you’re eager to turn you coin jar into a money pit, look fro the 1829 curl base “2” Liberty Cap Dime. This one is worth about $8,000.
There is also an 1874-CC Liberty Seated Dime that can auction at $5,000.
And for the more recent coin collectors, the 1968-S, no-S proof Roosevelt Dime is cashing out at about $7,500.
