Why buy this Gold Mercury Centennial Dime

This Mercury Gold Centennial Dime bears the West Point Mint’s “W” Mint mark on both faces. It marks 100 years since the release of the original Mercury dime. It is 24-karat gold and has a limited mintage of 125,000. Grading information for this piece is provided on a blue label.

Who designed the Mercury Gold Centennial Dime and what does it represent?

Adolph Weinman designed both faces of the Mercury dime, and this piece mirrors the original. A product of its time, the reverse features a fasces that symbolizes America’s military readiness, while the olive branch wrapped around it is indicative of a preference for peace. On the obverse, Liberty is depicted wearing a Liberty cap. Weinman added wings to the cap, so the figure is often confused for the mythological Greek messenger, Mercury, a mistake from which the coin gets its name.

What does Specimen 70 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation mean?

Specimen 70 is a grade that the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) gives to coins that have some bullion and some proof qualities. The 70 is an indication that the piece has a perfect strike and lacks flaws that are visible under 5x magnification.
