Adolph A. Weinman designed the Mercury Dime which was minted from 1916 to 1945. Mercury Dimes were struck in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
1916-D and the 1942/1 overdates are the most famous as well as the rarest and most expensive Mercury Dimes. But there still plenty of dates from this popular early series that can still be purchased in high grade for a very modest sum.
Roll of 50 XF/AU, Random Dates As They Come
Nice flashy luster and a great strike.
Blazing mint luster with a whisper of golden toning. The entire coin is sharply struck including the central bands on the reverse.
CAC. Shimmering mint luster with a light golden hue and virtually perfect surfaces. Fantastic eye appeal and tied for the finest graded at PCGS and the only 67 to also receive CAC approval.
CAC. Fantastic quality with blast white luster and a sharp strike.
A very tough date to find with full bands with a huge price jump to the next grade - MS-65. This example is very attractive with blast white luster and no significant marks. Outstanding for the grade and an excellent value.
Flashy white luster and a solid strike with most the band detail intact. Super quality with just 3 grading numerically finer at PCGS.
Cream white luster with outstanding eye appeal.
CAC. Very well struck with satiny mint luster. The core is champagne toned with russet and forest green developing to the rim. Very attractive.
An amazing example of this scarce date with booming white luster and remarkable mark-free surfaces. The strike is sharp including the bands which are full and rounded. None have graded finer at NGC or PCGS!
