Collectors spend years searching to find some of the dimes in this set! Most are over half a century old – some struck more than a century ago – and have been out of circulation for decades. With this historic set, you’ll own every dime type since 1837 – four in 90% silver! You’ll get:
- 1837-1891 Silver Liberty Seated – Circulated during the California Gold Rush, Mexican War and Civil War. Created over 170 years ago by Christian Gobrecht.
- 1892-1916 Silver Barber – Features Liberty wearing a cap, but is named after its designer, Charles Barber.
- 1916-1945 Silver Mercury – Bought a meal in the ’30s and a matinee in the ‘40s. Weinman’s wing-capped Liberty inspired the popular nickname.
- 1946-1964 Silver Roosevelt – Last of the circulating 90% silver dimes. Depicts Franklin D. Roosevelt, the only actual person honored on a U.S. dime.
- 1965-date Copper-Nickel Roosevelt – Honors America’s only 4-term president, who led the nation through the Great Depression and WWII.
