Forty minutes. That’s how long it took for the U.S. Government to sell out all available stock of the highly anticipated 2016 Gold Mercury Dime. A coin 100 years in the making, it is the first of three Centennial Gold Coin issues for 2016, magnificent pure 24KT gold coins celebrating some of the most iconic United States coin designs in history. Struck in 1/10th ounce of 24 KT .9999 pure gold, each coin features the original design of the Winged Liberty or “Mercury” dime first issued in 1916. On the obverse, Miss Liberty wears a winged Phrygian cap, epitomizing the ideal of Freedom of Thought. It was her resemblance to the Roman gold Mercury that caused the nickname. On the reverse, a fasces appears along with an olive branch, symbolic of military strength and peace. We’ve been lucky enough to acquire some of these highly sought-after coins, and are making them available while we can. Each comes in their original Government packaging with Certificate of Authenticity. Don’t wait, order now!
