Full Description

The Mercury Dime is often referred to as the Winged Liberty dime. Minted from 1916 to 1945, the Mercury Dime was a patriotic symbol in both World War I and World War II. Available to you here is a 1943 specimen of the Mercury Dime, produced at the Denver Mint and in MS66 condition with full bands as certified by coin grading service NGC. A true collectors’ piece, this coin is highly-sought after for its beautiful numismatic features.

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. On this 1943-D Mercury Dime NGC MS66, the full bands are showing. Also on the reverse are the words ‘United States of America,’ the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and the denomination of ‘One Dime.’
