I like the dime. I like how small the Canadian dime it is. It feels good in the fingers although it can be a bit slippery and slip through the fingers. I also like the sail boat on the dime. It is very distinctive. The dime is such a different size and thickness that it can be picked out of a pocketful of coins even when you are blindfolded. Here is to the dime, may she never change.

My client is visually imparied and they taught them at the blind school how to tell the coins apart I can't really say that one coin is more fav than others - tho I liked the old Mercury dimes, they were pretty.

Well, the old liberty head dollar coin was also pretty, but not like the mercury dime - I've also seen the old indian penny - cute I do like the new nickels, they are different, I mean Thomas Jefferson has been on there forever without a change - well, they used to have a buffalo on the back, but these new ones are a nice change!

I like the look of the penny the best, especially a shiny penny. I think I also like it because Honest Abe is on it.

Hi whywiki, That would be hard to say. In he USA I don't think I would pick the dime because it is very small and thin and it is hard to hold on to. I think the quarter would be the favorite coin. It is larger and easier to hold on to. It is a bit thicker too. It is the largest coin that is used the most. Well, maybe the nickel might be about as thick, but it is smaller. But our dime is very small and thin and if you drop it you have trouble picking it up. It is even smaller then the penny which is out one cent piece. I am not a big fan of coins. The are heavy and can be annoying to carry around. But we have to use the quarters here for our bus system unless we bus tickets. The bus no longer takes dollar bills. So to ride one way on the bus we have to have 8 quarters. That is quite heavy if you need to go back and forth you need 16 quarters.

I think the thing I like about the dime is it is so small and sleek, everything I am not. We have loonies and toonies too instead of ones and two dollar bills. They are heavy and a pain but when you are broke you can usually search your pockets and come up with some money.

I can't help it, I'm attracted to the shiny quarter... besides, here in the u.s. we have some which are different for the fifty states.. so at least there's some variations!

They have special quarters here to. Every once in awhile some really cool ones come out and I start collecting them then I spend them by mistake!

I never thought about this! I think I would like the quarter best. I have no idea why, but I always like to have a few quarters in my pocket. Maybe it is because it only takes a few of them to make a dollar. Maybe it is from all of my younger days spending time at the laundrymat. lol

Oh yuck quarters and laundry! I remember those horrible days. Never enough quarters to get the laundry completely dry!
