Franklin Delano Roosevelt is the president on the dime. The obverse side which shows the bust of Roosevelt, also has the legend "Liberty" along the rim, and the motto "In God We Trust". The date of issue is also found on the obverse of the dime with a corresponding mint mark located above the date. The reverse design is a flaming torch and two different branches of leaves, olive leaves to the left and oak leaves to the right. It also includes "United States of America" is above the torch , "One Dime" is written below the torch, and the motto "E Pluribus Unum" is written sort of in the background of the dime just below and behind the torch.. This design was first introduced in 1946 and is still in use today.
