Mercury dimes have been very popular since their introduction in 1916. The image on the front is not actually Mercury but Liberty wearing a hat that is reminiscent of Mercury, the messenger god who was known for his winged hat. These coins have .900 actual silver content and their face values total one dollar. The silver content and the beautiful design are what make these dimes so popular. Since they were only available from 1916-1945 they are somewhat hard to come by. Even harder to find are dimes that are in Brilliant and Uncirculated condition. 


Key Features:

  • Each coin has .900 actual silver content
  • Face value of individual coins $.10 (USD) backed by the United States.
  • The obverse side of the coin has Adolph A. Weinman’s design of Lady Liberty.
  • On the reverse side is a Roman fasces wrapped in an olive branch
  • Brilliant Uncirculated condition (BU)


The obverse of this side features a design by Adolph A. Weinman that is very different from how we are used to seeing Lady Liberty. Here she is wearing a pileus cap. Her hair, which is short and curly here, spills out a bit. This coupled with a more masculine looking Liberty makes her resemble Mercury very much. This is why collector’s nicknamed it the “Mercury dime”. Above her head is ‘LIBERTY’. Beneath her chin is ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’. Below the image is the year of issue. 


On the reverse is another image that is very Roman which is a fasces. A fasces is a bundle of sticks and an ax bound together with leather. It is a symbol of power and authority. This was very familiar to Romans as their leaders carried them. Around the top of the image is ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’. Below the image is ‘ONE DIME’. 


These  90% Silver Mercury Dimes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition won’t last long. Each individual coin is an issue date range of 1916-1945 and is dependent on stock on hand. Get yours today.
