Initially released in 1916, the Mercury Dime marked a significant shift in American coinage design. While officially named the Winged Liberty design, the coin garnered the nickname "Mercury Dime" due to the striking resemblance of Liberty to the Roman god Mercury.

Weinman's portrayal of Liberty on the obverse is notable for its masculine features, reminiscent of the messenger god. Liberty is depicted in left-profile relief with curled, short hair and a distinctive pileus, or Liberty cap, adorned with wings. The cap played a pivotal role in associating the coin with Mercury.

The obverse of these 90% Silver Mercury Dimes features Weinman's portrayal of Liberty, surrounded by engravings of "Liberty," "In God We Trust," the "AW" initials of the designer, and a date mark at the bottom.

The reverse side showcases the Roman fasces, an emblem symbolizing war and justice. This motif is juxtaposed with the olive branch, representing peace, elegantly wrapped around the fasces.

All 90% Silver Mercury Dimes in this listing originate from the original issue range spanning from 1916 to 1945. Safely packaged for shipping, you'll receive a collection of these historic dimes, each contributing to the rich tapestry of American coinage.
