The Most Priceless American Dimes in Use  

Let's delve into the realm of the most priceless American dimes in circulation, each with its own unique story and rarity. 

Often considered the holy grail of dimes, the 1916-D Mercury Dime is highly sought after by collectors. 

Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, this dime features the allegorical figure of Liberty donning a winged cap, commonly mistaken for the Roman god Mercury.  

What makes the 1916-D edition particularly valuable is its low mintage, with only 264,000 produced. 


As one of the earliest dimes minted by the United States, the 1796 Draped Bust Dime holds immense historical significance.  

With a mintage of just 22,135, this dime is exceptionally rare and commands a hefty price tag among collectors. 

The 1874-CC Liberty Seated Dime is notable for its association with the Carson City Mint, which operated during the era of the Wild West.
