Full Description

In 1916, only 264,000 dimes were produced at the Denver Mint, making this 1916-D Silver Mercury Dime a key date in the series. Presented here in About Good condition as certified by NGC, this Mercury Dime still shows the coin’s general design but may have worn rims and lettering that is nearly obliterated. However, because of the small number of 1916-D dimes in existence, these coins still have significant value for collectors seeking to complete the series.

Obverse

Adolph A. Weinman created the design for the Mercury dime. It features a young Lady Liberty wearing a winged cap. Weinman later said the winged cap represented liberty of thought. A tightly-ringed row of curls peeks out from beneath Lady Liberty’s cap. It is generally believed that the model for Lady Liberty was Elsie Stevens, Weinman’s former tenant and the wife of Wallace Stevens who was then a lawyer but in later life was known for his poetry. Also on the front of the coin are the word ‘Liberty,’ the motto ‘In God We Trust,’ the date, and Weinman’s initials ‘AW.’

Reverse

The reverse of this dime features a battle ax and some fasces tied together with leather bands, the complete image symbolizing war and justice. Also on the reverse are the words ‘United States of America,’ the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and the denomination of ‘One Dime.’
