In 2016, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the classic 1916 Mercury Dime, the United States Mint issued this 24-karat gold American Gold Mercury Dime. This is one of three coins issued as part of the 2016 Centennial Gold Coin Program. It celebrates the Winged Liberty, known as one of Adolph A. Weinmans greatest designs. Currently, this 2016 1/10 oz American Gold Mercury Dime Coin is available for purchase online from Provident Metals.
Each of these 2016 American Gold Mercury Dime coins contains 1/10 Troy ounce of 24-karat gold, which is symbolic of the coins denomination of one dime, and is struck with a business strike finish. The coin also features a reeded edging.
The obverse of each 2016 Gold American Mercury Dime features the Winged Liberty design of Adolph A. Weinman. It is a left facing profile of Liberty, with her hair tucked up into the Phrygian cap upon her head. Due to this design being so similar to the one of the Roman god Mercury, Americans began referring to this coin as the Mercury Dime rather than the Winged Liberty Dime. Inscriptions on the obverse include Liberty, In God We Trust, 2016, and an A tucked under the W to represent the initials of the designer, Adolph A. Weinman.
The reverse of each 2016 Gold American Mercury Dime features a Roman Fasces wrapped up by a branch of olive leaves. The fasces represents Americas military might and readiness while the olive branch is a sign of her resolve for peace. Inscriptions on the reverse include United States of America, One Dime, E Pluribus Unum, AU 24K, 1/10 Oz, as well as a W mint mark for the West Point Mint.
This is one of three gold coins issued by the US Mint as part of the 2016 Centennial Gold Coin Program. These three gold coins the Mercury Dime, the Standing Liberty Quarter, and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar were issued to commemorate the original three classic coin designs first issued by the US Mint in 1916. The Mercury Dime was the first of these three coins to be issued.
