Buy Iconic Mercury Dimes For Less From Money Metals Exchange

Adolph Weinman designed two of the US Mint's most popular and beautiful coins. One was the "Walking Liberty" half dollar, and the other was the "Mercury" dime. The US mint produced these coins from 1916 - 1945 in 90% silver. Today these coins are popular with silver investors and coin collectors alike.

It will be a surprise to most people outside of the coin collecting community that the familiar profile wearing a winged helm on the coin's obverse does not represent the Roman god Mercury. That mistaken assumption is so common the coin will forever be associated with the god of messengers. In fact, the image is of a young lady liberty wearing the Phryrgian (winged) cap.

Each Mercury dime contains 0.0715 ounces of actual silver which translates to 0.715 ounces for each dollar of face value (10 dimes). The coins are 90% silver and 10% copper, but buyers only pay for the silver content. The calculation used to determine the silver weight in any quantity of these coins excludes the copper.

These dimes cost a bit more than regular 90%, or "Junk", silver dimes and quarters. But for fans of these coins, the modest additional premium may be well worth it. 

Silver US coinage, including Mercury dimes, are a great way for bullion investors to buy silver without paying huge premiums. These coins have the additional advantages of being trusted and recognizable. They are marked as official legal tender from the US mint and spent decades in circulation.

This trait also makes the coins ideal for anyone who is building a barter stash. The truth is that the unbacked US dollar will not survive if the federal government destroys the confidence backing our currency by continuing to borrow and spend without restraint. It is wise to prepare against the day that confidence collapses and merchants no longer accept dollars for payment. The small denomination and the recognizability should make Mercury dimes easy to trade for items as small as a loaf of bread.
