The United States Mint (Mint) will reopen sales for the 2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin (product code 16XB) on December 15 at noon Eastern Time while supplies last. Orders will be limited to one per household.
The coins are beautifully struck in .9999 fine 24-karat gold to celebrate Adolph A. Weinman’s original Winged Liberty Dime design. The coin is commonly referred to as the Mercury Dime because of Liberty’s resemblance to the Roman god Mercury. Each coin contains one-tenth troy ounce of 24-karat gold, symbolic of the coin’s denomination of one dime, and is struck with a business strike finish.
