The modern United States dime in circulation today still features the image of President Franklin D. Roosevelt on one side, and the torch, olive, and oak branches on the opposite. These elements were introduced in 1946, and remain unchanged to this day. Only the Roosevelt dime has gone completely unchanged in its basic design elements since its introduction.

Franklin D. Roosevelt is the only President of the United States to win election to the office four times in total. Upon his death in 1945, a movement was initiated by Roosevelt supporters in the US Mint and Treasury to replace the Winged Liberty Dime (Mercury Dime) design with one honoring Roosevelt. The dime was a natural choice given his role in launching the March of Dimes movement during the Great Depression.

On the obverse of all 90% Silver Roosevelt Dimes is the left-profile portrait of President Roosevelt. The reverse features a torch in the center, flanked by an olive branch and an oak branch. The combined symbols reference liberty, peace, and strength, respectively.

These coins are from circulation in the US economy, and feature 90% silver content that was halted by the US Mint starting in 1965. As such, all of the coins in this product listing feature mint marks between 1946 and 1964.

Each bag of 90% Silver Coins is the equivalent of approximately 71.5 ounces of pure silver. These U.S. coins are extremely valued for their high silver content.
