The 2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin pays homage to one of the many coin designs issued during what is known as the "Renaissance of American Coinage". Adolph A. Weinman’s original Winged Liberty design is considered one of the most beautiful coins of all time!

In 2016, the U.S. Mint will mark the centenary anniversary of three numismatic icons with the release of the 1/10 oz Mercury Dime, 1/4 oz Standing Liberty Quarter, and the 1/2 oz Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coins. Each of these coins features an allegorical representation of Liberty being the last design of each denomination to do so.

The mint's goal is to match each Gold coin to the size and diameter of their original Silver coin from 1916. Plans are to issue business strikes only, meaning no proof or uncirculated versions will be issued.

Tiny, but beautiful

By  Georgia Dave

5.0

I've always loved the Mercury dime so had to have one of these centennials. I opted for one of the SP70s with the hope that these will show some decent appreciation in the years ahead. It's a really beautiful coin, albeit quite a tiny little piece. Love owning this classic in gold.

Understand the designation SP-70

By  Chester

from California

5.0

The PCGS designation of SP-70 does NOT mean "proof and perfect." Rather, it means "special and perfect." Read the APMEX product description carefully, especially the last paragraph. All in all, though, this is a very special beautiful coin! For the gold content alone, it is about 2X spot today.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Most affordable price for a coin having many pedigrees, hopefully adding to the rarity of this coin!
