Kick-start a collection of beloved Mercury dimes with this historic First and Last Year Set from the Philadelphia Mint! You’ll receive a first-year-of-issue Mercury dime struck over 100 years ago in 1916 and a last-year-of-issue coin minted in 1945 during the final year of WWII. Designed by renowned sculptor A.A. Weinman and produced in 90% silver, the Mercury dime is considered one of the most beautiful coins ever issued by the U.S. Mint.
Depicting Liberty wearing a winged cap, the obverse was mistaken for an image of Mercury and the coins are known by that name. The reverse features an ancient Roman symbol of authority consisting of a bundle of rods with an ax blade. This appealing coin design was inspirational to Americans through two world wars and the Great Depression. Along with your First-and-Last Year Set, you’ll receive a FREE custom folder and FREE series checklist to display and keep track of your Mercury dime collection.
