Minted from 1916 to 1945, the Mercury Dime has seen America through some of its most trying times, from World War I through the Great Depression and World War II. It was designed to replace the former Barber dime, which had been minted since 1892. Contrary to its nickname, though, the Mercury Dime does not feature the Roman deity, Mercury. Instead, it actually portrays Miss Liberty wearing a winged cap to represent freedom of thought.
With such strong symbolism, it is no wonder this dime became an icon to the American public and helped carry them through such difficult times. Minted in .900 pure silver and designed by famous sculptor Adolf Weinman, the beloved Mercury Dime has been popular with collectors since it's introduction in 1916.
