The Roosevelt Dime – A Fact Check
Since 1946, the Roosevelt dime has been the official ten-cent piece of the United States. The coin gets its name because it features a depiction of President Franklin D. Roosevelt on the obverse. The coin was originally made by the Philadelphia mint on January 19, 1946 and entered circulation eleven days later on what would have been the president’s birthday. President Roosevelt, who suffered from polio, was the founder of an organization called the March of Dimes, which at that time existed with the goal of ending the polio epidemic amongst children. This may have influenced the choice of mint officials to depict him on the dime. Prior to the year 1965, Roosevelt dimes were struck using silver and a copper base, but they’ve since been made from copper and nickel. Today, only these clad coins remain in circulation.
Since the Roosevelt dime has been made in large quantities, it is not usually highly sought after by collectors, although some coins are considered valuable due to minting errors. The most collectable Roosevelt dimes are from 1982 and 1983 and were minted in Philadelphia or Denver. These coins must be in pristine condition to be considered of value. Other valuable dimes were minted without the “S” mark from the San Francisco mint. They were produced in 1970, 1975, and 1983 and released in proof condition. Other coins to watch for include 1982 dimes that were minted without the “P” mark.
Since the coin was minted, the design has changed very little. The only minor changes were changes made to the president’s hair and the location of the mint mark. In 2003, it was proposed that dying President Ronald Reagan’s face replace Roosevelt’s on the coin, but Mark Souder, the Indian state representative who originally proposed the switch, was met with much opposition. Even the president’s wife, former First Lady Nancy Reagan, opposed the idea because she felt like her husband would not have wanted it. After Ronald Reagan died in 2004, support to make the change started to decrease. As of 2021, the coin’s design remains the same as it has been since the 1960s.
