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.
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.

mercury dimes arrived on time. they were heavily worn as expected but some were in better shape. this was a good purchase and free goldbuck was a great bonus.

Purchased a nice sac of Adolph Weinman's design going back to 1917 and some in better-than-expected condition... Good haul ...I`ll do it again.

I have to say, the care that was used to package and send my $500 purchase was very evident. From the two tiny but heavy velvet bags, the heavy protective sleeves that were used for the documentation (and a free goldbuck!!) , to the sturdy and well sealed outer shipper. The actual silver was exactly as expected - heavily worn circulation coins. But not all; some were only somewhat worn, to my untrained eye. This level of care for my pittance truly exceeded my expectations, and made the extra waiting time well worth it.

Packages arrived in a timely manner. My silver dollars were beautiful and the dimes were in great shape and well worth the investment.

It was a lot of fun getting the Mercury Dimes and going through them...there were a lot of old coins in with the ones I received, including some from before 1920. I recommend buying these and having them on hand... And they are kind of fun too! Sincerely, David C.
