Introducing the 1 oz Mercury Dime Design Silver Round, featuring the bold, and interestingly handsome, image of the Roman god Mercury! These Silver Rounds contain 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and take their design from the Mercury Dimes that were first minted in 1916. These privately minted silver rounds hold no denominational or numismatic value. They are valued based on their silver content of one troy ounce .999 fine silver.
Mercury was the ancient Roman's messenger god who protected merchants and travelers. Often interchangeable with the Greek god Hermes, Mercury wore a helmet that had wings sprouting from either side. This helmet helped the god to move around the world and the universe at a rapid pace, and is pictured on the head of these 1 ounce Mercury Silver Rounds.
