The Mercury Dime is the most popular dime among coin collectors. It is a beautiful design, is readily available in most years, even in uncirculated condition. Adolph Weinman, who also designed the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, actually designed this as an allegory, Liberty with winged cap. It was meant to represent liberty or freedom of thought. However, the public thought that it looked like the Roman god Mercury, god of commerce and communication. So, it stuck.

Most rare coin collectors will get stuck on the 1916-D, 1921, and 1921-D Mercury Dimes. The 1916-D is the key to completing the coin series. However, with a mintage of 264,000 it is not a rare coin, but it is rare relative to the large number of Mercury Dime collectors. The 1942/1 and the 1942/1-D were created during World War II by reusing the 1941 Mercury Dime dies and simply stamping a 2 over the 1.
