The United States Mint marked the 100th anniversary of its 1916 coin designs that replaced the Barber Coinage with an exciting 2016 collection 24-karat gold coins. Each of the three designs featured on 24-karat gold blanks with sizes reflective of the original face value of the denomination issued back in 1916. Provident Metals now offers 2016-W American Mercury Dime 1/10 oz Gold Coins in near-perfect condition for you to purchase online.
When you purchase a 2016-W American Mercury Dime 1/10 oz Gold Coin in this listing, the item you receive is sealed in a protective plastic slab from the NGC with a near-perfect Specimen Proof 69 certification. An SP69 coin showcases full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin.
Early Release specimens were received in a specific time window. To earn the ER designation, coins must arrive at the NGC within 30 days of the original release from the United States Mint.
Obverse designs of the 2016-W American Mercury Dime 1/10 oz Gold Coins include the image of Winged Liberty from Adolph A. Weinman. This design was created in 1916 for the US Mint and went on to feature on the US Dime from 1916 to 1945. It was known as the Mercury Dime colloquially because Libertys winged Phrygian cap resembled the messenger god Mercury from Roman mythology. Inscriptions on this side include Liberty, In God We Trust, 2016, and the AW initials of Weinman as originally used on the Mercury Dime.
In the reverse design element of the 2016-W American Mercury Dime Gold Coin, there is a Roman fasces. A symbol of power often carried by magistrates, the fasces represents civic and military power. This design wraps the fasces in an olive branch. Inscriptions around the design field include United States of America, One Dime, and E Pluribus Unum. You will also find Au 24k 1/10 oz. inscribed on this side.
The American Centennial Gold Series in 2016 revived the Mercury Dime, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar designs on 24-karat gold bullion coins. The coins had weights reflective of the original values. The Mercury Dime is on a 1/10 oz blank, the Standing Liberty Quarter on a 1/4 oz gold blank, and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar on a 1/2 oz gold blank.
