With both the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime under his belt, Adolph A. Weinman was one of the largest contributors to the American Coin Renaissance. As a pupil to the legendary sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, it is no surprise that Adolph A. Weinman designed two of the most beautiful coins to be struck in American history.

The Mercury Dime, or Winged Liberty Head Dime, received its name due to the obverse image, which depicts Lady Liberty wearing a cap crowned by wings. Since the winged cap was often associated with the Roman God Mercury, many people began calling this dime the Mercury Dime instead of its proper name. The reverse of this coin depicts a Roman Fasces surrounded by olive branches, which together symbolize unity and peace. The original production of the Mercury Dime began in 1916 and ended thirty years later, in 1945. Add this limited mintage coin to your collection for the low price of only $399!
