Description

Why purchase this roll of fifty brilliant uncirculated 1955-D Silver Roosevelt Dimes?

The Roosevelt Dime honors the legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States and the only person to be elected for four terms of service in the Oval Office. As a tribute to Roosevelt’s founding of the March of Dimes, the dime was aptly chosen to bear his image. The U.S. Mint launched the series less than one year after his death, on January 30, 1946, the day that would have been Roosevelt’s 64th birthday. From its inception in 1946 until 1964, circulation Roosevelt Dimes were struck from 90% silver. Imagery for the Roosevelt Dime is the work of the U.S. Mint’s eighth Chief Engraver from 1925 until 1947, sculptor John R. Sinnock, who also created the likeness of Benjamin Franklin for the 1948 Franklin half dollar coin.

  • This roll includes fifty 1955-D Roosevelt Dimes.
  • Each coin contains 0.0723 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, for a combined weight of 3.615 oz.
  • The coins were each struck at the Denver Mint.
  • Each coin measures 17.9 mm in diameter.
  • Final mintage is reported to be 13,959,000, one of the lowest mintages of the Roosevelt Dime series!
