America’s 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, is honored on the
Roosevelt dime. As our nation’s only 4-term president, FDR ably led the country out of the Great Depression and through World War II. Shortly after his death in 1945, the Roosevelt dime series was issued. Given his association with the March of Dimes to defeat polio – a disease FDR himself was afflicted with – the Roosevelt dime was a fitting choice.
