  • Description:

    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 1942-S Mercury Dime is in very good-very fine condition, containing wear but the date should still be readable. There were over 49 million dimes, minted by the San Francisco Mint in 1942.

    The infamous San Francisco Mint, which is dated all the way back to the California gold rushes, is one of those mints. This west coast-based mint was established to help prospectors turn their mined treasure into currency. In just its first year in production, the San Francisco Mint turned $4 million worth of gold into coins!
