The obverse of the coin depicts the profile of President Franklin D. Roosevelt
and the reverse boasts an olive branch, a torch, and an oak branch,
from left to right respectfully. As of 2011, the dime coin cost 5.65
cents to produce. Dimes from 1965 to the present are composed of outer layers of 75
percent copper and 25 percent nickel, bonded to a pure copper core.
Starting in 1992, the U.S. Mint began issuing Silver Proof Sets
annually, which contain dimes composed of the pre-1965 standard of 90
percent silver and 10 percent copper. These sets are intended solely for
collectors, and are not meant for general circulation.
