The first ten cent piece issued by the Federal Government, the Draped Bust Dime was minted from 1796 to 1807. Mintages were limited compared to later types due to the early technology available at the Mint and the dies striking the coins were produced mostly by hand. Numerous die varieties and die marriages exist for the design and its successor.

The changing of the reverse from the Small Eagle to the Heraldic Eagle occurred contemporaneously with the other silver denominations of the era. All coins of this type were made in 0.8924 fineness at the Philadelphia Mint. The original designer of the Draped Bust Dime hasnít been recorded.
