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.
Unbelievably intense, blast white luster explodes off this incredibly high quality, first year Mercury Dime!

A beautiful, well struck Gem example of this early Mercury Dime. The obverse is immersed in a wonderful pool of color with vibrant shades of violet, green, and gold while the reverse is essentially blast white. The entire coin is well struck including full band detail and the surfaces are void of significant abrasions. A very high quality '17-D dime!
A spectacular dime with fiery mint luster, a great strike and gorgeous light iridescent toning. A couple of very trivial marks away from perfection!
CAC approved. Nearly flawless and well struck with virtually full bands. A beautiful silver patina blankets this Premium Gem and a touch of champagne-gold toning attests to its originality. Only 13 have graded MS-66 with just a single coin grading higher at PCGS. Super quality!
