We are excited to release the thirty-third coin in the CollecTons Keepers program, an exclusive series only offered by CollecTons. The thirty-third coin we present, CollecTons Keepers #33 in Series, features the rare 2015-W Silver Proof Roosevelt Dime.
Why is the 2015-W Roosevelt Dime a Coin Worth Keeping?
To this date the 2015-W Roosevelt Proof Silver Dime is the first and only proof dime to bear the "W" mint mark. It is known as a key date coin and one every serious collector should obtain for their collection.
The March of Dimes Foundation was formed in 1938 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to combat polio. Today, the mission of the March of Dimes Foundation is to improve the health of babies. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the foundation, the US Mint created a "March of Dimes Silver Set". Included in the set was a silver proof Roosevelt Dime produced at the West Point Mint. This was the first and only proof dime minted at West Point. By limiting distribution of the March of Dimes Set, the mint insured that the mintage of this dime would be kept very low, at only 75,000.
Today, the 2015-W Proof Silver Dime is a highly sought after modern rarity due to the low mintage and high demand. It is a key date coin and essential piece to any Roosevelt Dime set, making it an obvious choice for a CollecTons Keeper!.

What makes the Collectons Keepers program special?
Here at CollecTons, we work hard researching coins that should be part of every collection. Our goal is to utilize our knowledge in the numismatic industry to select coins worthy of being in everyone's collection! Therefore, the CollecTons Keepers program will only feature those Coins Worth Keeping.
Each coin is hand selected and given to ANACS (America's Oldest Grading Service) for grading and authentication. The coins are then sealed in an ANACS certified proprietary slab holder for long-term storage, with our limited edition label marking it a CollecTons Keeper.
