What is the melting point of a dime?

    Seems to be about 1984 degrees fahrenheit. Dimes are 91% copper and 9% nickel, both of which melt at about 1984 fahrenheit.

    Since 1965, dimes have been composed of 0.750 copper and 0.250 nickel. The melting point of copper is 1083 C, or 1981 F and the melting point of nickel is 1452 C, or 4656 F, so I’d expect the melting point of a dime to be somewhere in between, although I’d expect the copper to just melt first, and the nickel, later (assuming the temperature of the heating apparatus continues to rise).
