Hi, it's Eric The Coin Kid here. I haven't posting because of school but I will try my best to write when I can. It's been about 2 months since my last post. Anyways, Today I will be writing about Roosevelt dimes. The dime that is in circulation today.

Let's get right into it. I also had my 1st B' day with the ANA! Note: this was supposed to be done in november but its already the new year! Happy Haolidays!


Roosevelt dimes were minted starting from 1946 and are still being minted now! The Roosevelt dime concept was designed by Selma Burke, but lots of others think another sculptor named designed and created it. Moving on. According to the red book though, it says that John R. Sinnock designed the Roosevelt dime.

The roosevelt dime was made up of ninety-percent silver and ten-percent copper from 1946-1964 and now is being made with 75% copper and 25% nickel. Moving on to the values and errors. Most silver Roosevelt dimes are worth two dollars in circulated condition, which is around the current melt value. Ones in mint state condition are worth much more than circulated silver dimes. Ones in mint state can go for 3-8 dollars. There are also key dates that make the value jump up. Some of the key dates (not proofs) include the: 1946 s, 1949 s, 1950 s, and the 1954 s. The 1951 s and 1949 silver dimes are also worth money. Some of the error silver coins include the: 1960 DDO ( Double Die Obverse), 1963 DDO, and the 1964 DDO.

Onto the non-silver roosevelt dime that is still minted today!

The metal composition is 75 percent copper and 25% nickel. The design did not change much and credit was given to John R. Sinnock. All of the modern ones are worth face value. Unless it was an error or variety. Some of the errors included the 1982P no P mintmark, 1986 S (proof) no S, 1970 s (proof) no s, 1975 s (proof) no s, and the 1983 s (proof) no s. Those are just the major errors. I hoped you guys learned something new and happy new year! I'll be back to blogging soon :). Grinding those YN dollars lol. See yall next year in 2022!

Unknown to me until recently, Selma Burke (an African-American) designed the bust for FDR on the Dime, she was never given her due. Selma is another "Hidden Figure" in our history. You can read about her work here: https://blog.gale.com/selma-burke-reexamining-the-dime/

Welcome back Eric! Roosevelt Dimes are a great set to complete. The concept was not by Selma Burke though. Historians think her Roosevelt bust INSPIRED John R. Sinnock’s design. It’s a triple struck blog!

Good blog, I collect them but I'm no fan of Roosevelt. How about a new design? I would like to see that. How about an MLK Jr dime?
