1946 to Date Roosevelt Dimes

The Roosevelt Dime was introduced Jan. 30, 1946. The American public in 1945 was clamoring for some memorial to their fallen leader, whose passing had come just as he was about to enjoy a sweet victory after years of struggle and worry during WW11. Within the Treasury Department, plans were made quickly for the introduction of a new coin to honor Roosevelt.

The reverse design of a torch, olive branch, and oak branch is intended to symbolize, respectively, liberty, peace, and strength and independence. As with the quarter and half-dollar, 1964 was the last year of traditional .900 fine silver coinage. Beginning in 1965, the dime assumed its current composition, a sandwich of copper between two layers of an alloy of 75 percent copper and 25 percent nickel.
