The Roosevelt Dime was introduced in 1946, following the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and shortly after the conclusion of World War II. The design was created by United States Mint Engraver John R. Sinnock. The obverse features a portrait of Roosevelt in profile. The reverse contains the image of a lit torch with an olive branch and oak branch to each side. The original design has continued to be used to the present day for the ten cent denomination.
