These coins are official legal tender - 90% pure silver circulation dime currency coins that were minted by the US Mint when real silver was still used in the coinage. A mercury dime is a traditional dime that was minted in the United States from 1916 -1945. The dime got it's name due to the Phrygia cap that Lady Liberty is depicted wearing which originally was meant to represent freedom, however many at the time said it gave Lady Liberty the likeness of the Roman god Mercury. This was met with much controversy at the time and thus it received the name "mercury dime" which is still used to describe it today. Exact years will vary by bag, however each will contain ten 90% pure silver Mercury dimes which were minted from 1916 to 1945.

Each $1 Face Value Bag contains approximately 0.715 oz of silver. Dimensions listed are approximate and will vary slightly.
