Mercury Dime (1916-1945)
As you know, Mercury dimes are the popular ten-cent pieces produced by the United States Mint from 1916 to 1945. This dime is made of 90% Silver and contains just over .072 troy ounces of silver. The Mercury Dime is more properly referred to as the Winged Liberty Head Dime. Many of the public mistook Adolph Weinman’s design featuring a young Liberty for a depiction of the Roman god Mercury, and a nickname was born. Although the coin’s design was embraced by citizens and officials alike, some modifications were necessary, as the Mercury dime did not perform properly in some vending machines. This iconic dime was produced until 1945, when the Treasury ordered new artwork honoring the recently deceased President Franklin Roosevelt.
Every coin enthusiast is likely to already awn an example of a Mercury dime, and indeed APMEX has often suggested Mercury dimes as an ideal coin for the beginning collector. However, a sophisticated numismatist ready to build a great coin collection will be searching for a Mercury dime in the upper echelons of its type. We are thrilled to make available this stunning 1924-D Mercury Dime MS-67 NGC (FB)

Morgan Silver Dollar (1878-1921)
Minted for over 40 years, the Morgan Silver Dollar will be familiar to all experienced collectors. It was in circulation longer than any other similar coin. Heralded as best and most beautiful of all the Silver Dollar designs, the Morgan Silver Dollar was immediately embraced by U.S. citizens when it debuted in 1878. Production of this coin continued thorough 1921, when it was replaced by fresh, albeit less popular, artwork. The design of the Morgan Silver Dollar shared some features of the Bust Silver Dollar, but it is obviously much more detailed. Collectors always hope to find a carefully preserved coin that has avoided the wear and tear of circulation or careless storage. As these coins are all over or approaching 100 years old, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a Morgan Silver Dollar that appears to be untouched by the hands of time.
But of course, we can offer them to you. Compiling the outstanding coins it takes to build a true rare-coin collection takes dedication and just a bit of luck. Today, APMEX has an 1891 Morgan Dollar MS-65 PCGS

These American Gold coins were part of Theodore Roosevelt’s personal quest to beautify American coinage. Designed by Bela Lyon Pratt, they depict a strong and striking Native American profile wearing a full headdress on the obverse, and an imposing bald eagle on the reverse. As you likely remember, these Gold coins, along with the $2.50 Indian Gold Quarter Eagle, are the only coins in the history of the United States Mint to feature an incuse or sunken relief design.
