A classic silver coin from a legendary era.
The Mercury Dime is one of the most beautiful and storied of all U.S. silver coins. It was first struck over 100 years ago in 1916 and last made shortly after the end of World War II in 1945. Inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt and made possible through the brilliant Artistry of Adolph A. Weinman, one of America’s foremost sculptors, the front shows Liberty wearing a winged cap to represent freedom — but the public mistakenly believed the image was Mercury, the messenger of the gods from ancient Roman mythology. As a result, the Winged Liberty Head Dime quickly became known as the “Mercury” Dime!
Mercury Dimes have not been seen in circulation for generations, and their high silver content has resulted in millions being melted for their valuable silver. But now, you can own a spectacular collection that brings together 25 Mercury Dimes, each a genuine silver masterpiece and a unique link to the glorious legacy of America’s bygone history.
You will receive two coins each month, except for the final shipment, which will include a single coin. What’s more, at about the same time as your second coin shipment, you will receive a deluxe faux-leather book-style display at no additional charge. The display beautifully houses and protects your collection and opens to reveal a captivating narrative written by experts that details the history and significance of the Mercury Silver Dime.
