|The 1994 ten-cent piece honors President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was chosen for the US dime because of his efforts in founding the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Roosevelt himself suffered from polio as a child, and invested a large amount of time in raising money for polio victims, their families, as well as research efforts for the disease. People were asked to send in donations in ten-cent increments, which is why the foundation was later renamed the March of Dimes and the reasoning behind why Roosevelt was chosen for the US dime. Originally made out of silver, the US dime converted to a copper and nickel composition containing 75 percent copper and 25 percent nickel. The copper-nickel coin weighs 0.08 oz., measures 0.70 inches in diameter, and contains reed edges around the perimeter of the coin. The designer is John R. Sinnock, and the obverse side of the 1994 ten-cent piece features the side of President Roosevelt's head. The reverse side of the copper-nickel coin is more detailed, containing a torch, olive branch, and oak branch, which symbolize freedom, peace, and victory.|
