Key Dates The 1916-D Mercury Dime is considered to be the most significant key date of all Mercury Dime mintages. Only 264,000 Mercury Dimes were struck at the Denver mint in 1916, and far less than that have survived the test of time.

Mercury dimes were minted to the same specifications as modern dimes. Most Mercury dimes are thinner due to normal wear due to circulation.

Many stackers, preppers and investors buy Mercury dimes in increments based on their face value. Each coin is fractional silver and 50 dimes fit into standard bank rolls or tubes.
