The 2 oz Silver Mercury Dime round pays tribute to the iconic ten cent coin struck by the US Mint from 1916 to 1945. Also known as the Winged Liberty Head dime, the Mercury Dime gained its common name because the obverse image of a young Liberty in a winged Phrygian cap was confused with the Roman god Mercury.

The obverse features Lady Liberty wearing a winged Phrygian cap, akin to the original Mercury Dime. The word LIBERTY stretches overhead and IN GOD WE TRUST is marked to the bottom-left, just like the original. “1916”, the first year of issue of the original Mercury Dime, and “W” for original artist Adolph Weinman is inscribed in the bottom-right area of the design field.
The reverse is also reminiscent of the original Mercury Dime. It features a fasces, which is a bundle of wooden rods with an axe on the outside. The fasces symbolizes unity and strength, and the encircling olive branch symbolizes peace. The image is flanked by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” above, “ONE DIME” below, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM”(out of many, one) and a “D” mint mark in the field. The round’s weight, purity, and metal content are inscribed along the blade of the axe in Microprinting.
