Roosevelt dime history
The Roosevelt dime was created in honor of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who died in 1945, aged 63. The president died of polio, and it seemed appropriate to include his portrait on a dime. A fundraising campaign called "March of Dimes" began during Roosevelt's first term as President.
The coin's obverse features the head of Roosevelt and the motto ‘In God we Trust,’ in small lettering. The design also includes the word ‘Liberty’ in larger letters and the date the coin was minted, and Sinnock's initials.
The reverse features three symbols of American freedom and peace; a flaming torch, an olive branch, and an oak branch. The coin also includes the Latin motto ‘E Pluribus Unum.’
