Sinnock was assigned to prepare the new design, and his initial design was rejected. After preparing a new design, it was approved on January 6th, 1946 and on January 30th, 1946 the Roosevelt dime was released on what would have been Roosevelt's 64th birthday. The obverse features Roosevelt's bust facing left with Sinnocks initials JS in the truncation of the neck and the date to the right.
The reverse depicts a torch, olive branch, and oak branch symbolizing liberty, peace and strength, respectively. The mint mark is found to the left of the torch at the bottom, however starting in 1968, the mint mark was moved to the obverse above the date.
