Over 100 years ago at the turn of the 20th century, the Barber Silver Dime could be found in pockets and cash registers across the nation. Everyone recognized this beautiful silver coin, and today it is cherished as a genuine piece of our nation's history.
The Barber Silver Dime was minted only from 1892-1916. During its short life, the Barber Silver Dime was struck at the U.S. Mints in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The different coins can be identified by the small mint mark on the reverse. Coins from Denver have a small 'D' mint mark below the wreath on the reverse, while the coins from San Francisco have a small 'S' mint mark. Coins from Philadelphia have no mint mark.
This collection brings together the three Barber Silver Dimes from these three U.S. Mints. Together, they make a fabulous collection that has been impossible to assemble from pocket change for almost 90 years. The Barber Silver Dime disappeared from circulation when it was replaced with the Mercury Silver Dime in 1916.
The coin is named after its designer, Charles E. Barber, who was Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint and one of the most famous and prolific coin designers in United States Mint history. The obverse depicts Liberty with a triple headdress of cap, laurel wreath, and a tiny coronet inscribed with the word 'Liberty.' The reverse shows the denomination within a wreath.
Each coin was struck in .900 pure silver. As a result, they have been the targets of melting over the years. Few coins remain in nice collectible condition, like the hand-selected examples in this collection. The age and scarcity of these silver coins makes it virtually impossible to assemble a collection like this on your own.
The three-coin collection is housed in a custom display and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
