Prior to 1965 many United States coins contained at least 90% silver. In 1965, the decision was made to phase out silver from the currency. Today, many collectors like to include some of these ‘junk coins’ in their portfolios. These coins are considered ‘junk’ for their design which isn’t something inherently collectible. The silver content of these coins is the reason why they are highly sought after. You can trust that these coins are definitely certified to be 90% silver.
On the obverse of these coins is a portrait of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This is John R Sinnock’s design and features the president in profile facing to the left. This design was chosen for the dime in his honor shortly after his death in 1945. This coin is not without controversy. Some claimed that the JS initials at the base stood for Joseph Stalin and not the artist’s initials. Another controversy is that some said it was copied after a bust done by African American artist, Selma Burke. Sinnock denied this and stated that he used one of his previous designs for inspiration. Above the picture of Roosevelt is written “LIBERTY’. At the lower left side of the coin is ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’. Below the image is the year of minting. The year varies on these coins and is subject to stock on hand.
The reverse side has a torch with a sprig of olive and a sprig of oak to each side of it. Above the image is ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”. Below the image is ‘ONE DIME”. In the background of the image is ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM’.
