(1946-Present) Roosevelt Dime Coin

CoinTrapTM Commentary: First released to the public in January of 1946, the Roosevelt Dime entered the stream of public consciousness and everyday simple transactions.  It is instantly recognizable by most if not all Americans. Having founded what would later become the March of Dimes organization, the decision was made to honor President Franklin D. Roosevelt for this and his many other achievements by depicting his portrait on the obverse of the coin. The reverse has imprinted a torch, an olive branch, and an oak branch.  You gotta love the Roosevelt Dime!  Truly a mainstay of the U.S. currency.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the Unites States of America.  He was an American leader through difficult times of war and economic depression.  As leaders before him used adversity to commence the first meeting of representative government in Williamsburg Virginia, President Roosevelt rallied through the tough times and helped the American people persevere. The history of Colonial Williamsburg and the Jamestown settlement is very extensive.  You can travel there and stay in
Williamsburg VA hotels to gain the whole experience first hand.  Just as you can do this, you can examine the life of President Roosevelt and learn how much he did for our country during and after his presidency.  Leaving behind The March of Dimes is not all he did--he inspired a nation. It is only fitting that he be represented on American currency

Coin Value: What is the value of your Roosevelt Dime coin?  It all depends on a few important factors. The Roosevelt Dime coin worth or value depends on these main factors: (1) your coin’s grade, (2) whether it is a proof coin (Deep Cameo or DCAM) having a mirror-like polished finish, (3) whether it is a silver version, (4) the mint (P for Philadelphia, S for San Francisco, and D for Denver), and (5) scarcity/demand. Regarding your coin’s grade, it has become a standard in the field of numismatics (coin collecting) to grade coins on a point-scale from 1 (poor) to 70 (perfect).  This is also referred to as the “Mint State” or just “MS” for short.

If you do not know the grade of your Roosevelt Dime coin, you can take it to your local coin dealer and ask that they have it graded at one of the three major coin grading services.
