dimes

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'making money in america' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'i'm entertained by little desmond' is the wordplay.
'entertained by' indicates putting letters inside (I've seen this in other clues).
'little desmond' becomes 'des' (I've seen this in other clues. I am not sure about the 'little' bit.).
'im' placed inside 'des' is 'DIMES'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for dimes that I've seen before include "$0.10n (n>1)" , "Tenths of dollars" , "Tenths of a dollar" , "US ten-cent coins" , "Ten-cent coins of USA" .)
