The Silver Roosevelt Dime was introduced in 1946, shortly after the conclusion of World War II, and less than a year after the death of the 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt. This represented the fourth circulating denomination to change its design from a depiction of Liberty to that of a former President.
When introduced, the coins were minted in a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper, although this was changed in 1965 to a composition of 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel. During the course of series, the coins have been produced at the Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco Mints.
