  • Description:

    Being the last year the New Orleans would produce the Barber Dime, the 1909-O Barber Dime has a low mintage of just over 2 million. The 1909-O Barber Dime is in very good condition, with intensive wear on both sides of the coin but the date is still readable. The Old Mint, served as a branch of the US Mint from 1838-1861, then again from 1879-1909; serving alongside three other mints in order to produce the highly collectible Morgan silver dollar. Decommissioned in 1909, the New Orleans Mint has been used as an assay office, a fallout shelter, and a storage facility for the US Coast Guard. The Old Mint is considered an official historical landmark and is presently the oldest structure in the US. The Old Mint also participated in other important coin series, such as the Barber coinage, wherein it is one of the only coin collections that has the same design on all denominations.

    On the obverse, of every Barber Dime, is the ageless Liberty. 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 obverse also contains the coin's date of mintage. The reverse usually reveals a heraldic eagle, draped in a shield and is holding arrows and olive branches in its talons. This design has been used over time on most US currency and is the US national seal. Unfortunately, the Barber Dime was too small for such an extravagant design so its reverse solely contains its monetary value.
