The Ultimate Roosevelt Collection: 2014s F.D.R. Coin and Chronicle
The Roosevelt Dime has long been a collector’s favorite…and when you take into account the man behind the image, it is easy to see why! President Franklin D. Roosevelt was one of America’s most beloved Presidents...in fact yesterday, July 18th, was the anniversary of FDR being nominated for a third term as U.S. President! Something that had NEVER happened before in U.S. History – and will likely never happen again!
In honor of this special anniversary, we are bringing back one of the most sought after Roosevelt collections ever made: the 2014 FDR Coin and Chronicle Set!
A Legendary Leader and His Iconic March
After the tragic death of President Roosevelt in 1945, legislation was quickly introduced calling for the Mercury Dime’s design to be replaced with one bearing President Roosevelt’s iconic image. What many did not know is that the decision to place Roosevelt’s image on our 10-cent piece came out of our respect for the life’s work of our former president.
No achievement is greater than his role in founding the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, an organization that is now known as the “March of Dimes”. The Roosevelt dime design was released on January 30th, 1946, the day that would have been the former president's 64th birthday.
