  • Description:

    Known as the leading producer of coins worldwide, the Denver Mint started its journey small. Compared to the other US Mint branches, the Denver Mint was young when it started producing silver dollars. Only established in 1906, the Denver Mint mainly focused on commemorative coins but also participated in the Barber coinage production. In 1921, the Denver joined forces with its sister branches to help produce the Morgan silver dollar, that was soon changed to the Peace silver dollar. Since the Denver Mint was established much later than the other mints, its participation in major coin collections was limited causing collectors to put any silver coin with a "D" mint-mark at the top of their collecting list.

    Edward Leech, the Mint Director, decided he wanted to update the Seated Liberty design. Offering a cash prize for the winner, Leech reached out to local artists and wanted to hold a competition for the best design. When he received negative feedback, Leech went to the Chief Engraver, William Barber, and came out with an ideal design that President Benjamin Harrison approved of. The Barber coin series is one of the only series to contain the same design on the dime, quarter, and half dollar at once. On the obverse of Barber Dimes, Liberty is pictured and is wearing a Grecian leaf crown. The obverse also contains the coin's date of mintage. The reverse reveals solely the coin's denominational value of one dime. The 1908-D Barber Dime contains a lower mintage of only 7.4 million and is in very fine condition, exhibiting worn features, such as smooth edges main details lacking. The 1908-D was minted at the Denver Mint and will be packaged in a coin flip for protection while in transit.
