10 Different Proof Roosevelt Dimes

 E-mail this product to a friend


• The first Roosevelt Dime was minted in 1946 as a tribute to President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Roosevelt died in office the previous year.

Roosevelt was instrumental in establishing the March of Dimes to help find a cure for polio (a disease from which he suffered).

Roosevelt served four terms as President (1933-1945) – the only President to serve more than two terms.

• As President, he guided the United States through the Great Depression and World War II.

• The coin was designed by John R. Sinnock.

• One side shows a portrait of Roosevelt; the other side features a flaming torch (a symbol of liberty and freedom).

• In addition to the regular coins for circulation, the U.S. Mint also made a small number of Proof coins.

• This set includes 10 Proof Roosevelt Dimes with different dates. 

• Proofs are the highest quality U.S. coins.

• Each coin is struck multiple times under high pressure to bring out the three-dimensional designs and mirror-like background.

• Due to the painstaking minting process, Proofs are limited editions.

• These coins are never seen in circulation because they were made exclusively for collectors in limited editions.

• Proof coins are not available individually from the Mint but are sold only in official U.S. Proof Sets.

• Prior to 1968, the Proof coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint and have no mint mark.

• Since 1968, the Proof coins have been struck at the San Francisco Mint and bear the coveted “S” mint mark.

• There are 10 coins;  they were struck in .750 copper and .250 nickel bonded to an inner core of pure copper.  Dates are random.

• The set comes in a custom display wallet with a Certificate of Authenticity.
