The Mercury Dime, also known as the Winged Liberty Head Dime, was a ten-cent coin minted by the United States from 1916 to 1945. The coin was designed by Adolph A. Weinman, who also designed the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Lady Liberty with wings on her head, symbolizing freedom of thought. The reverse of the coin features a Roman fasces, a bundle of rods with an ax, symbolizing strength through unity.

 

The Mercury Dime is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful coins in American history. Its design is widely praised for its simplicity, elegance, and detail. The coin's popularity was due in part to its association with the patriotic sentiments of World War I, which occurred during its early years of production. The coin was also relatively small, making it easy to carry and use in daily transactions.

 

In addition to its aesthetic qualities, the Mercury Dime is also highly collectible due to its rarity and historical significance. Several key dates and mint marks are highly sought after by collectors, including the 1916-D, 1921, and 1942/1 overdates. Despite being out of circulation for over half a century, the Mercury Dime remains a beloved and highly coveted piece of American numismatic history.
