About Mercury Dimes

As the midsummer sun beats down onto an orange grove worker, its rays bounce from a dime on the floor and into his eyes. Mercury dimes graced the pockets of people across the U.S. from 1916 to 1945. Featuring Lady Liberty in a side profile that makes her look like the Roman god Mercury, these dimes soon lost their original namesake and adopted a misnomer in its place. Thanks to their 20th-century circulation, Mercury dimes are easy to find in uncirculated condition. Reliable sellers on eBay offer them from a large variety of years, making it easy for dedicated collectors to find them from their desired era. If you are starting a fresh collection, a Mercury dime roll can get it flowing. All you need to do is give them a clean when they arrive and display them proudly in a case. When you buy your Mercury dime set, you may find that it comes with convenient shipping options. All you need to do is find a set that comes from a year that fascinates you.
