  • Description:

    William Barber served as the Chief Engraver, to the US Mint, from 1869-1879, before passing the torch to his son, Charles Barber. In just the short ten years as Chief Engraver, Barber was responsible for a history-breaking coin design. Being one of the only designs to grace all current denominations, the Barber design was inspired by the Grecian goddess, Liberty, who has been admired and loved by warriors since the beginning of time. Liberty wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown, which was very common in ancient Greece, and the "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse. The reverse only contains the coin's monetary value of one dime.

    The 1914 Barber Dime contains an average mintage with over 14 million minted. The 1914 Barber Dime is the second to last year of its production and is in uncirculated condition, which is the highest grade it can be. The Philadelphia Mint 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 mandated that an emblematic symbol of liberty should be depicted on all US currency, lending to the Lady Liberty craze over the years.
