Rare 1970 Roosevelt Dime: The "Mistake" Makes All the Difference

When you consider the hundreds of millions of coins that have been struck since the U.S. Mint first began operations in 1792, there are remarkably few mistakes. . . and those coins become prized finds for serious collectors. The 1970 No "S" Roosevelt Dime is the product of such a "mistake" mintage - and it can be yours today through GovMint.com.

The 10 Cent Roosevelt coin was first struck in 1946, the year former President Franklin D. Roosevelt died. It was an exceptionally popular coin, and in 1970 alone, over a billion were struck. Only Proof coins were produced at the San Francisco Mint, however, and of these Proof coins, approximately 2,200 were struck without the "S" mint mark. This error only occurred three times (1968, 1970, 1983) making each year highly sought after by collectors. Add to that the striking appearance of the 1970 Roosevelt Dime, and there is even more reason to display it proudly.

Unlike coins minted for general circulation, Proof coins are struck three to four times with specially-prepared dies on polished planchets. The result? Razor sharp edges and a mirrored background that suitably reflects this coin's iconic imagery.

The obverse of the 1970 10 Cent Roosevelt coin features a left-facing President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and is inscribed with "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the date "1970." The reverse of the coin features a torch in its center, which represents liberty. To the right of the torch is an oak branch, signifying strength and independence, and to the left is an olive branch, representative of peace. Inscribed on the reverse are the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and the denomination "ONE DIME." The coin is comprised of .750 Copper and .250 Nickel.

With a grade of PR68 from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), your coin will reach you virtually as struck, with only slight imperfections or weakness of strike, assuring you of a lustrous finish. This high-caliber rating only adds to the rarity - and value - of your 1970 No "S" Roosevelt Dime. While other collectors may struggle to find this unique coin, you won't. It can be yours today from GovMint.com - if you act fast. Our supplies are limited, and we don't expect that stock to last!
