Mercury Dimes

The Mercury Dime (also known as the Winged Liberty Head Dime) was issued from 1916-45 and was designed by Adolph A. Weiman. Although commonly thought to be the Roman God Mercury, the figure on the obverse of the dime is actually a Winged Liberty Head. The wings are intended to symbolize the liberty of thought. The initials AW can be found to the right of the neck of the Winged Head Liberty figure.

The reverse of the Mercury Dime features symbols signifying unity, peace, and strength (fasces and olive branch). When the dime was first released little was known about the reverse design and it was dubbed a “battle ax” by some newspapers. Fasces comes from the Latin word for bundle and refers to a bundle of wooden sticks with an axe blade emerging from the center and traditionally symbolizes “strength through unity.”

The Mercury Dime has always been quite popular with collectors and was circulated widely in its day. It is thought that if the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt did not occur in April 1945, the design on the dime would not have changed. Roosevelt was widely associated with the March of Dimes and the U.S. Treasury chose the ten cent denomination to honor him.

There were no 1923-D or 1930-D Mercury Dimes minted but counterfeit copies can often be found depicting these years. There are also two error’s associated with the Mercury Dimes: 1942 2 over 1 and 1942-D 2 Over 1.

Mercury Dimes have a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper. Each coin has a weight of 2.50 grams and a diameter of 17.9 mm and has reeded edges. The Mercury Dime was minted at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco U.S. Mint Branches.

More Mercury Dimes can be found under the One of a Kind Selctions sub-category.
