2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin For Sale

by TheCoinKeeper

On April 21, 2016, that United States Mint listed the 2016 Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin for sale. This gold coin pays tribute to the classic Mercury dime design that was created 100 years ago by Adolph A. Weinman.

This one hundredth anniversary numismatic coin is composed of 1/10 ounce of 99.99 percent gold. With a measurement of .650 inches in diameter and a thickness of .047 inches, this offering is slightly smaller than the original Mercury dime that was first minted by the government in 1916. The coin will be struck with a "business strike" that resembles the same type of strike seen on circulated, silver Mercury dimes. To accomplish this, the Mint used a 1/10 ounce gold planchet.

This gold dime was originally priced at $205. The Mint uses a grid system to price their gold offerings. The $205 figure was associated with the price of spot gold at a point of $1200 to $1249.99. Each coin will come in a custom wooden box with an accompanying certificate of authenticity.

On the obverse side, the word "Liberty" surrounds an image of Winged Liberty. Facing left, Lady liberty wears a winged cap that some say resemble those worn by the Roman God, Mercury--hence the name--"Mercury dime." "In God We Trust," a "W" mint mark and the date "2016" are inscribed at the bottom.

The reverse side of the coin has an image of an olive branch circling a Roman fasces. The words "United States of America" surround the image around the top and "One Dime" is inscripted around the bottom. E pluribus unum, AU 24K and 1/10 oz. are placed to the right of the image.

This gold Mercury dime is the first offering of Centennial Gold coins that marks the 100th anniversary of Mercury dimes, the Standing Liberty quarter and Walking Liberty half-dollar. The latter two will be offered later in 2016 at weights of 1/4 and 1/2 ounces, respectively.
