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 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 increase the silver Mercury dimes worth and make them easy to trade for items as small as a loaf of bread.

Great dimes and fast shipping.

Silver stackers heaven

By T. P. on April 15th, 2019

MMX has been my go to dealer for my silver stacking habit. I pretty much just buy mercury dimes in $100 face bags. I have found that the mercs from MMX are less worn in general than from other companies. This is a bonus, as the price from MMX is always competitive. If not the best price of all. I have been buying for 4 years now from these guys, and I know I don't ever have to look or buy elsewhere. They are a delight to deal with when I talk to them personally, and I would highly recommend them as a top notch and professional company. Sincerely, Tom Polette

Great company

Nothing but good things to say about Money Metals Exchange. This was my second order with them and they delivered quite promptly. They've become my go-to for buying larger amounts of silver.

Easy savings

customer for 6+ yrs. My siblings and I were born in this time-span so I sort thru these coins for all our birth years and bag them up for birthday or Christmas presents. Besides their value, they are (to me) the most beautiful coin and are a good value from MMX.

History in your hand

By Paul S. on April 29th, 2018

Besides the beauty of the coin, the premium is small for the history. Got 3 rolls which included about 8 coins in the teens(these were the only ones that were well worn). However, all had legible dates. A few could not have mint marks made out. Overall, I plan on getting more in the future.
