The striking 1 oz Mercury Dime Silver Round offers a beautiful replica of the work of Adolph Weinman, whose memorable designs were displayed on the US dime from 1916 -1945. It boasts an impressive 1 troy oz of .999 fine silver, making it ideal for customers wishing to make substantial investments in silver. Each round is in newly minted condition and ships in either a protective plastic sleeve or its original tube of 20 pieces.
Because all rounds have been obtained directly from their original minting source, customers can rest assured that they will receive a genuine collectible with every purchase. Please be advised that although this silver round uses images from the original Mercury Dime, it has no legal tender face value.
The front of the round features Weinman’s celebrated “Winged Liberty Head” design, which he had been commissioned to create as a part of the US government’s campaign to diversify the artwork on US currency. The image depicts Lady Liberty in profile, wearing the winged helmet of Mercury. She is intended to embody the ideal of free thought. Further promoting this concept of free expression is her name, which has been inscribed in an arched formation above her portrait. With the exception of the coin’s mintage date, the round’s front image offers an exact replica of the original Mercury Dime.
Unlike the front of the round, the reverse departs from Weinman’s design by displaying a unique version of the heraldic eagle. This rendition includes an eagle behind a shield. The bird has a ribbon in its beak that has been stamped with the phrase “E. Pluribus Unum” and is holding a bundle of arrows in one set of talons and an olive branch in the other. As the final touch to this inspiring design, artists have engraved the round’s purity and weight along its border.
