Who is on the dime?

Answer

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is on the current U.S. dime. The present design was released on Jan. 30, 1946, which would have been FDR's 64th birthday.

The left facing bust was designed by U.S. Mint's Chief Engraver John R. Sinnock. He also designed the reverse side of the coin, which is adorned with a torch that signifies liberty, an olive branch that signifies peace, and an oak branch that signifies strength and independence. The dime is the smallest of the coins used in the United States. It is 17.91 millimeters in diameter and 1.35 millimeters thick. It weighs 2.268 grams.
