Now You Can Secure America's Last Circulating 90% Silver Dime in These $5 Original Face Value 50-Coin Rolls

If you remember the jingle of silver coins in your pocket back in the day (or even if you don't), you're invited to return to those thrilling days of yesteryear with these average circulated 50 coin rolls of Roosevelt Dimes.

A Memorial to FDR in 90% Silver

Shortly after President Franklin Roosevelt passed in 1945, the nation searched for a way to commemorate his service as president during the dark days of the Great Depression and World War II. The memorial decided upon was to replace the Mercury Dime with a new design with a bust of FDR on the obverse. The Roosevelt dime was first struck at the Philadelphia Mint, the Denver Mint and the San Francisco Mint in 1946. The coins were struck in 2.5 grams of 90% silver and contained .072 grams of pure silver between 1946 and 1964, the last year they were minted in silver.

Silver Meltdowns of Gigantic Proportions

In 1964, silver prices started rising, and soon the value of the silver in the coins surpassed the face value. No surprise, they disappeared from circulation almost overnight. These 90% Silver Roosevelt's were melted by the millions to obtain the precious silver. This happened again in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and one more time just a few years ago. After each meltdown, the coins themselves became harder and harder to find.

Many Collectors Prefer These 'Small Change' Silver Coins

Because silver is measured in the benchmark weight of 1 Troy oz., finding silver in forms that weigh less than an oz. can be quite a challenge. That's why these $5 rolls of average circulated 90% silver dimes are so popular. In addition you never know what might happen and no one can predict the future value of any coin, but a silver Roosevelt Dime, once small change, could be big change at some future date. Each $5 Roll of 50 coins comes in a hard plastic tube for ease of storage.
