1976 S Roosevelt Dime
Coin Dealer Insight: Even though the U.S. was celebrating the bicentennial, the focus was on the Washington quarter instead of other coins. This meant that even though the obverse of the quarter was a special design and the date on the front commemorated the bicentennial, the design of the Roosevelt dime remained unchanged. As a matter of fact, from 1946 until today, the design of the Roosevelt dime has had no changes whatsoever. Production of the dimes in 1976 from both the Denver and Philadelphia mints was in excess of 1.26 billion dimes and no error dimes of any notice were produced.
