  • Description:

    In 1916, the US Mint decided to switch out the Barber dime, which was personally designed by the US Mint's Chief Engraver. The US Mint held a competition of designs for the possible new dime and Adolph Weinman, the German-American sculptor won. Weinman's design was meant to depict a Winged Liberty, wearing an ancient Phrygian cap but earned its nickname of the Mercury dime since it was very similar to the Greek god, Mercury. Although the design of the Mercury dime was revered for its unique creativity, it was less popular for those who actually had to produce the coin. The Mercury dime was incredibly difficult to make into a die design but still had a long run from 1916-1945. The 90% Silver Mercury Dime roll consists of 50 dimes, making the bag contain a face value of $5. The Mercury dime is one of the most popular 90% silver items sold and is extremely difficult to keep in our inventory for long. This Mercury dime roll only consists of common dates, since the lower mintage dates are sold at a higher premium.
