In 2016, the United States Mint struck this 1/10 oz of pure 24 karat gold example of the Mercury Dime to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Adolph A. Weinman`s iconic design. Now, for the first time in history, this beautiful design is able to be seen in glorious gold. This perfectly struck Specimen 70 coin has a limited mintage of just 125,000, making it a tremendous absolute rarity. A Specimen coin features a finish that is a hybrid of a Mint State coin and Proof coin. This centennial commemorative release was struck at the West Point Mint and features the W mintmark on the reverse of the coin.
