Mercury Dime Value Facts:

Mercury Dimes are common and most are worth their silver melt or currently $1.50 to $5.00 each depending on their grade, but there’s a few key dates to mention. The 1916-D is the key date and it’s worth at least $500, if authenticated, and that’s followed by the 1921 and 1921-D which are worth at least $50 each.

Grade – Condition:

Grade and condition is more important than mintage when it comes to each Mercury Dime value. The ideal grade is MS63 or higher with Full Split Torch Bands, the bands are on the reverse and they’re more rare struck with fully split torch bands.

However, there’s a few dates and mints that are valuable in lesser grades like the 1926-S, 1924-D, 1925-S, but any date from 1931 and back with a D or S is worth a decent premium in at least EF (Extremely Fine) or better.

Mercury Dime proofs are worth a substantial premium and they’re dated from 1936 through 1942. The Mercury Dime values for proofs is several hundred dollars to thousands for certain grade conditions.
