These small yet historically rich coins, minted from 1916 to 1945, have earned their place with investors for their exquisite design, intrinsic silver content, and versatility in trade and barter.
Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the obverse of the Mercury dime depicts Liberty wearing a winged cap, commonly mistaken for the Roman god Mercury, hence the coin’s name.

This elegant design adds to the coin’s allure and has made it an enduring favorite among numismatists.
