  • Description:

    The 1912 Certified Barber Dime MS64 NGC has a mintage of over 19 million and has earned the high grade of MS64. NGC is the preferred grading agency among mints and collectors and is specifically known for their competitively high standards. Barber used the Head of Liberty to grace the obverse of the Barber coin series. Liberty's look is inspired by a Grecian Goddess and she wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown. "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse of the Barber Dime. The reverse only contains the coin's monetary value, instead of the more extravagant design on the other Barber coins.

    One main fact, about the Philadelphia Mint, all collectors know is that the Philadelphia Mint has participated in every coin series since it was established, leaving no mint-mark as their mark. The Philadelphia Mint is the main branch of the US Mint and is the oldest mint in the US, being established in 1792. After the ratification of the Constitution, the Founding Fathers needed to establish a national identity and a means of commerce. At the time, Philadelphia was the capital of the US so it only made sense for the first mint to be built there. The Mint Act was also passed, during this time, to assign coins denominations based on their legal tender or metal fineness. This act also constituted that any coin in the US should feature "an impression emblematic of liberty."
