The Mercury Dime was minted from 1916-1945. In a scant 3/4" circle, the designer Adolph Wienman was able to convey complex and symbolic imagery. We have the image on front thought to be the Roman god, Mercury, but is, in fact, a portrait of young Liberty wearing a hat similar to a Phrygian cap, which are both associated with liberty and freedom. He added the wings to the cap to represent "liberty of thought." The back of the coin depicts a fasces, (bundle of rods) which in Etruscan and Roman cultures represented the power of the magistrate. No wonder coin collectors revere this most elegant coin.
