Neither. Although her fingers partially obscure it, the coin that Rose gives to Jack is generally agreed to be a Barber dime, minted 1892-1916. The Barber dime is distinctive because the portrait of Liberty on the head of the coin faces the right, not the left. See www.imdb.com

Even more bizarre is that Kennedy has never been on the dime - half dollar after his assassination but never the dime. It was probably Franklin Roosevelt.

Yeah FDR is on the dime, but if my history skills are right....titanic sunk in...1912...FDR wasn't even prez until the 30s.

The dime is clearly a mercury dime. Which was in circulation at that time. anyone who watched the video would have seen that.....

I saw some coins made for this movie in Titanic On Tour. I don't think Jim could make such mistake unless it's an egg.

Bob H. is right, even though it is hard to see the picture on the dime, the Barber dime's picture faces to the left, not the right. This can be seen in the movie if you have a good eye, or at least push the pause button on the VCR.
