    90% Silver Mercury Dimes ($1 FV, Circulated)

    The Mercury Dime was one of the most popular circulation coin designs in American history. This unique depiction of Liberty led to the inaccurate name of the coin in the American populace. Though it was officially the Winged Liberty design, Liberty’s similar appearance to the Roman messenger god Mercury resulted in the more commonly used Mercury Dime terminology.

    Junk silver is a somewhat misleading term often applied to valuable silver coins.

Junk silver is applied to these coins because when you buy them in bulk, the coins come from circulation a... Read More

    90% Silver Dimes from US Circulation at JM Bullion

    The Coinage Act of 1792 authorized the production and face value of various early US denominations. The US dime was a 10-cent coin first issued in 1796 and is the smallest US coin in diameter and the thinnest US coin currently in production at the United States Mint. The dime denomination is referred to in the Coinage Act of 1792 by the Old French term disme, meaning tithe or tenth part. While the modern US dime is produced with a cupro-nickel alloy, the coins once featured 90% silver content for more than a century. Below you can learn all about the history of 90% Silver Dimes available at JM Bullion.

    History of Silver Content in US Dimes

    When the dime was first introduced in 1796, the coins actually had a similar silver content to those issued up until 1965. From 1796 to 1837, the US Mint produced the coins with 89.24% silver and 10.76% copper. This applied to the first two designs issued in the series: Draped Bust and Capped Bust. With the introduction of the Seated Liberty design in 1837, the US Mint raised the silver content to an even 90% silver with 10% copper. This remained the standard from 1837 to 1964. All of the dimes from 1837 to 1964 have .07234 Troy oz of actual silver content.

    Seated Liberty Dimes

    The first US dime design issued with 90% silver content was the Seated Liberty design created by Christian Gobrecht. This image was the same used on various other denominations of US currency during the 19th century, including half-dime, quarter, half dollar, and the silver dollar through its temporary halt in 1873. The Seated Liberty design was used from 1837 to 1891 and was the longest-used design until 2001 when the modern Roosevelt Dime design surpassed it in length. The designs on the coin include:

    • Obverse: A seated figure of Liberty is shown with a flowing robe while resting on a rock. Her right hand reaches back down to clutch the US national shield while her left hand grasps a pole that is topped by a Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom during the neoclassical period. A ribbon crossed the US national shield with the word “Liberty” written upon it.
    • Reverse: Given the smaller nature of the dime, the reverse is a simpler design element than you may find on other denominations. The words “One Dime” are inscribed at the center surrounded by a wreath.

    Varieties in the design of the Seated Liberty dimes occurred throughout its production history. The original issue of the coin had no stars around Liberty’s figure in 1837, with 13 stars representing the original colonies added around Liberty for the 1838 release. In the middle of 1860, the United States Mint swapped the inscription “United States of America” from the reverse to the obverse. The stars on the obverse were removed as a result and the wreath around the “One Dime” inscription on the reverse was fluffed up to take up the now-empty space.

    Barber Coinage Dimes

    The shortest-used design in the US dime series was the Barber Coinage image. This design was created in 1892 by Charles E. Barber, the 6th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, and used from 1892 to 1916. The image of Liberty on the obverse of these coins was used across the US dime, quarter, and half-dollar denominations during this period. There were no variations to this design throughout its 24-year period of coining:

    • Obverse: The obverse face of the 90% Silver Barber Dimes includes a Greco-Roman bust of Liberty in right-profile relief with a crown wreath on her head. The words “United States of America” are inscribed above with a date mark below.
    • Reverse: On the reverse side of 90% Silver Barber Dimes is a design with the denomination and a wreath, keeping much of the look from the reverse of the Seated Liberty design. “One Dime” is inscribed in the center with a large wreath around it.

    Winged Liberty/Mercury Dimes

    Used for 29 years, the Winged Liberty Dime was the last US dime to feature an effigy of Liberty on the obverse and is a coveted image among numismatists. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and used on this denomination until 1945. The appearance of Liberty on the Winged Liberty Dime resulted in many Americans referring to the dime as the Mercury Dime instead:

    • Obverse: The design features on the obverse of the coin include a left-profile bust of Liberty wearing a winged Phrygian cap similar to that of the Roman messenger god Mercury. Inscriptions on this face include “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” the “AW” initials of Weinman, and the date mark.
    • Reverse: On the reverse side of the coin is a Roman fasces, a symbol of power and governance used by Roman magistrates. The fasces is wrapped in an olive branch and the inscriptions around it on this side include “United States of America,” “One Dime,” and “E Pluribus Unum.”

    Roosevelt Dimes

    The final US dime design to feature 90% silver content was the Roosevelt Dime. Still in production today at the United States Mint, the Roosevelt Dime was produced using 90% silver from 1946 when it was introduced into production and 1964, the final year in which American silver coins had 90% silver content. The bust of President Franklin D. Roosevelt was put on the US Dime in honor of his recent death in office and his staunch support for the March of Dimes, an initiative to find a cure for polio, a disease the president himself suffered from in his lifetime.

    • Obverse: On the obverse side of the coins is a bust of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in left-profile relief that was designed by John R. Sinnock. Inscriptions include “Liberty” to the front of Roosevelt’s face, with “In God We Trust,” “JS” initials from Sinnock, and a date mark.
    • Reverse: The reverse face of the Roosevelt Dime includes a depiction of a torch in the center flanked by branches of oak and olive. Inscriptions read “United States of America” above, “E Pluribus Unum” behind the torch and branches, and “One Dime” below.
