The History of the Roosevelt Dime (1946 to 1999):

The first Roosevelt Dime was issued in 1946. The obverse depicted the profile bust of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The reverse design is that of a torch flanked by an olive branch on the left and an oak branch on the right. The Roosevelt Dime marked the first time that a U.S. Dime that depicted a figure other than Lady Liberty!

The Roosevelt Dime was designed by John R. Sinnock. His initials 'JS' appear on the obverse at the truncation of the neck. When the coin was originally issued, it was rumored, by an ignorant and paranoid post-was public, that the JS was placed on the coin to show allegiance to Joseph Stalin. Although this is completely false, it can be noted that the next coin Sinnock designed bore his full initials JAS. (Stalin's middle name is Vissarionovich!)

The Roosevelt Dime was originally composed of 90% Silver and 10% Copper. Since pure silver is very soft, copper was added to all circulating silver coins to harden them and prevent excessive wear. The silver Roosevelt Dimes were struck from 1946 to 1964. They had a weight of 2.75 grams and a reeded edge. The edges of most silver coins were reeded to make evident any attempt to shave silver off the coin.

In 1965 the composition was changed to a 75% Copper and 25% Nickel outer shell bonded to a pure copper middle. The weight of these 'clad' dimes is slightly less at 2.27 grams. This composition is still used today for circulating issues. All Roosevelt Dimes have a diameter of 17.9 mm. The edges of the clad piece are still reeded for traditions' sake.

Starting in 1992, the San Francisco Mint resumed production of Silver Roosevelt Dimes. These silver dimes are struck only as Proof Editions, for sale in collector sets, and were not placed into circulation.

Roosevelt Dimes are still in current production in both clad and silver versions. These ten cent pieces have been struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, and West Point Mints.

The origin of the word 'dime' is from the Latin 'decima' meaning tenth part. The first use of the word in the U.S. was actually spelled 'disme'.


Key to abbreviations used on this page:

BU (Brilliant Uncirculated): A strictly uncirculated coin with attractive mint luster but noticeable detracting contact marks or minor blemishes.

P (Philadelphia): The 'P' mint mark is located on the obverse, to the right of the truncation of the neck, just above the date.*

D (Denver): The 'D' mint mark was originally located on the reverse to the left of the bottom of the torch. In 1968 the mint mark was relocated to the obverse, to the right of the truncation of the neck, just above the date, where it remains to this day.

S (San Francisco): The 'S' mint mark was originally located on the reverse to the left of the bottom of the torch. In 1968 the mint mark was relocated to the obverse, to the right of the truncation of the neck, just above the date, where it remains to this day.

W (West Point): The 'W' mint mark is located on the obverse, to the right of the truncation of the neck, just above the date.

SMS (Special Mint Set): Made 1965-1967 at the Philadelphia Mint. No Proof Sets were produced these years.

SLR PF: Refers to Silver Proof coins.

1 and 2: The 1979 Type 1 coins have a "filled S" which was hard to read. The die was re-cut creating the Type 2 or "clear S." Similarly, in 1981, the dies for the coins were re-cut creating a Type 1 (Rounded S) and a Type 2 (Flat S).

* Note: Roosevelt Dimes struck in Philadelphia prior to 1980 bear no mint mark.
