  • $ 5.95


Franklin Roosevelt first appeared on obverse of the dime in 1946, soon after his death. The Roosevelt dime was released on the late president’s birthday, January 30. The reverse displays a torch signifying liberty with an olive branch on the left signifying peace and an oak branch on the right signifying strength and independence. U.S. Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high-quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief.
