The history of the Mercury dime
The 1/10 oz Silver round available at APMEX recreates the famous vintage Mercury Dime design, with the Winged Liberty portrait believed to be based on a bust of Elsie Kachel Stevens, who was married to poet Wallace Stevens. The vintage Mercury Dime was created by Adolph A. Weinman, who added to the coin a battle-ax atop to represent preparedness and an olive branch for peace – powerful symbols with World War I raging on. These Silver rounds are a reminder of Weinman’s fine work – and the beauty of coins created in the early 1900s. These fractional Silver rounds revive an important part of American coinage history.
Why invest in a 1/10 oz Silver round?
With a 1/10 oz Silver round, the weight and purity are stamped right on the round so there is never any confusion about how much Silver you are buying and selling. A Mercury Dime Silver round is an investment in Silver, but some investors also appreciate that Precious Metals like Silver have an intrinsic value unlike paper currency and stocks. Silver rounds with a definite weight and fineness can easily be used in situations where money has lost its value. Fractional Silver rounds are also an affordable way to start investing.
With 1/10 oz Silver rounds, you can diversify your investment portfolio.
A 1/10 oz Silver round is a way to tailor your investment in Silver to exactly how much you want to spend. Smaller Silver rounds can be easier to liquidate when you want to sell because it is often easier to find buyers for small quantities. As you buy fractional Silver rounds and can afford more Silver, you’ll want to consider heavier coins as typically the premium over spot price per troy ounce is less with larger coins. Buy Mercury Dime Silver rounds one round at a time or buy the Precious Metal in larger quantities for a better price point.
Understand how a 1/10 oz Silver round differs from a dime or other small coins.
A 1/10 oz Silver round looks like a government-minted Silver coin but it is not legal tender. The Mercury Dime Silver round recreates the famous Silver coin design from 1916-1945, but it does not have a date or a face value. But it does have the weight and purity of the round stamped on it. Many investors prefer Silver rounds to coins because Silver bullion rounds have a lower premium over the spot price of Silver. Fractional Silver rounds often have the same purity or better than Silver coins and are easily bought, stored, counted and sold.
