...size isn't that much of an issue.

No, in the US it has long been more about the standardization of the denominations used for commemorative coins. During the classic era, the half dollar was the standard, for much of the modern series the silver dollar has been the "go to" denomination - but there have been exceptions and "the times they are a-changin'!"

@Boba: It would be nice if you positively acknowledged the many CCF members who took the time to offer their thoughts in an effort to help you vs. only responding to the posts with which you had an issue.

While it's true that many folks here enjoy trying to help, all are volunteers and deserve acknowledgement vs. criticism, IMO.

Dimes have been having pillars or torches on the reverse for over 100 years now.
What would be so hard about changing the reverse to something more amusing?

As far as the obverse goes, a dime would be small enough to ignore having a figurehead on it. It needs some fancy design like the Shield nickel did.
