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.

AWESOME

By Jesse L. on October 3rd, 2020

100% satisfied, as always purchasing from MMX. Great service, great products.

Excellent value, very good coins.

By Craig M. on October 2nd, 2020

I ordered several hundred mercury dimes. All but one was in very good condition and that one had a bend that was easily fixed. Buying more.

Totally Satisfied

By Thomas S. on July 13th, 2020

A bag of junk silver in the hand is worth two in the bush. My 1st purchase with MMX. They are just as I anticipated, they arrived quickly and the container was even initialled (I assume) to assure problem resolution (if there was one). Next order will be quarters, then 50 cent pieces, then dollars. Lastly there is something kind of satisfying about buying from an Idaho based group. I am very happy. Thank you
