MERCURY DIME TRIBUTE

avatar

Who loves Mercury Dimes? I do!

1/4 TROY OUNCE – 20MM and 1/10 TROY OUNCE – 16MM

The Winged Liberty Dime are considered one of the most beautiful and iconic designs in American coinage.

It is commonly called the Mercury Dime and got its common name from its obverse depiction of the young Liberty which was confused with the Roman god Mercury.

As a compliment to that design, Limited Mintage minted these 1/10 troy ounce and 1/4 troy ounce Silver Rounds.


Contains 1/10 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver and 1/4 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver


Obverse: Winged Liberty Head surrounded by “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” below the portrait. Key Dated 1916.



Source: Limited Mintage


Reverse: The Fasces, a symbol of collective power, is flanked by “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” above, and “ONE DIME” below, as well as “E PLURIBUS UNUM” in the field. Complementing the Key date of 1916 with a “D” mint mark.


Source: Limited Mintage


Mercury Dime Values Can Be High. There are five primary mint dates that are the most sought after by dealers and collectors. The 1916 D, for example, may have a value of over $650 even in just good condition. The 1921 and 1921 D also can be highly valued with prices of $48 to $61 for coins in good condition and $96 to $178 for coins in fine condition. The 1926 S will likely have a minimum value of $10 for coins in good condition. JMBullion


Hallmarked “1/10 Troy Ounce .999 AG” and hallmarked “1/4 Troy Ounce .999 AG” along the blade of the ax in Microprinting.


I doubt if I'll ever come across a 1916 D Mercury Dime.

I can't seem to recall who made the biggest Mercury round in silver at the moment. But recently learned that the 1916 D dime is one the most heavily counterfeited coins in the collecting market, so well done that can fool many experienced buyers. The best advice is always to get such rarities only from a knowledgeable dealer.

Always, with love 🤗🌺❤️

They made a two-ounce one. When I get it, I will show it.
Is that the biggest?
Yeah, I rather get a .999, hahaha!
Hugs and kisses, sis.

I doubt if I'll ever come across a 1916 D Mercury Dime.

You just never know! I have to say that I am amazed at some of the coinage I have picked up in the strangest places. Of course, with everyone being a collector of everything and able to check the value instantly, it is getting less and less.

But, I am still getting the occasional surprise, which makes it all fun!

These are beauties! I have never seen them!
