Weinman, this coin features a stunning depiction of Liberty wearing a winged cap, commonly mistaken for the Roman god Mercury. The obverse showcases intricate details, including Liberty's flowing hair and the inscription "LIBERTY" on top. On the reverse, there is a fasces, symbolizing unity and strength, along with an olive branch, representing peace. The 1940 Mercury Dime is highly regarded for its exquisite design, which captures the essence of American coinage during that era.

Numismatic Value

The condition, scarcity, and demand for the 1940 silver dime all play a role in determining its numismatic worth.
