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, the history of the mercury dime silver coins alone makes it unique amongst other coins and bullion coins.

mercury dime reverse

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 Silver 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 junk silver dimes for sale, 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 when it comes to the overall coin values. Coin dealers and collectors, like to look for key dates that increase the Mercury Silver Dime value.

Silver US coinage, including Mercury dimes, are a great way for bullion investors to buy silver without paying huge premiums. This valuable coin has 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 increase the silver Mercury dimes worth and make them easy to trade for items as small as a loaf of bread.

Very Nice Mercury Dimes

By Edward W. on August 25th, 2022

Great Dimes at a very fair price. I will buy more

Mercury Dimes.

By Robert S. on August 9th, 2022

i spent half an hour writing a review when my computer decided to shut the internet down and I lost it. Short form. I was very pleased with my dimes. I received 1945 thru 1941 P, D, S. All the coins fall in the "Good" to "Fine" category. Only two had the last number of the date worn completely down. besides the high 40's I got 2 - 1917. a 1918, 1922, 2 - 1925 and a 1930S. haven't priced them yet but one price list I glanced at the coins were $3.49 to 8 bucks. I did good.

Not as far away in the universe as you think

By ZACHARY V. on July 6th, 2022

Easiest way to have these little planet disks in your hand. Fast. Some surprise qualities in each batch. Investment for smart barter use on hand. Get some.
