The Mercury Dime was issued from the years 1916 to 1945. The design is a long time favorite and the series is widely collected by date and mint mark. Most issues of the series are accessible, although there are a few scarce, low mintage coins that can make assembling a collection a challenge. Following the end of the series, the ten cent denomination would feature a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
