why did the 10 cent coin weight less than the 5 cent coin, anyone know?
Are you asking why they made the coin with more value smaller then the one of lesser value?
10-cent coin = 90% silver
5-cent coin = made of nickel, not silver
Way way back the 5-cent coin (half disme) was silver and was pretty small.
The silver 3-cent coin was even smaller
then they started using nickel for the 3-cent coins, and later the 5-cent coins. Since nickel was cheaper, the coin had to be larger to be worth the face value of the coin.
