We are pleased to offer for sale this 1949-S Roosevelt Silver Dime Gem BU.  This coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition with nice eye appeal and no major marks or visible problems.  This Roosevelt Silver Dime is taken from an original BU roll or Mint set, and is an outstanding value!

The Roosevelt Silver Dime was released to the public on January 30th, 1946, which would have been Franklin D. Roosevelt's 64th birthday.  The dime was chosen for honoring Roosevelt in large part because of his commitment to the National Foundation for Infant Paralysis, which was popularly known as the March of Dimes because of Roosevelt's encouragement that Americans send in one dime to fund the foundation.  

The Roosevelt Silver Dime was designed by mint engraver John R. Sinnock. The obverse of the coin features a profile view of Roosevelt, while the reverse features a torch, olive branch, and oak branch, which represent Liberty, Peace, and Victory respectively.  The design caused some controversy when it was released, as anti-communist sentiment led to speculation that the initials JS appearing under Roosevelt's neck were a tribute to Joseph Stalin.  In reality, they simply denoted that the coin had been designed by John Sinnock.

The 1949-S Roosevelt Silver Dime Gem BU is comprised of .900 (90%) silver and .100 (10%) copper with a diameter of 17.91mm and a mass of 2.5 grams.  It is a beautiful coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, a great value and perfect for any Roosevelt Silver Dime collection.
