|The 1923 Mercury dime is a collectable coin, which was released into circulation as legal tender in the year 1923. This 1923 dime has a face value of $0.10, but is worth many times that to coin enthusiasts and history buffs. Consisting of 90 percent silver, the remainder of the 1923 Mercury dime is composed of copper, and this collectable coin is silver in color. It can be brilliant to muted to tarnished, depending on storage conditions. There were a total of 50,130,000 of this 1923 dime produced, and they were minted in both the Philadelphia and Denver United States mints. As with all coins from this year, the possible conditions of this coin can range from very poor to uncirculated. The obverse of this 1923 dime depicts the god Mercury, wearing his winged cap and facing left, with the word "Liberty" above his head. The words, "In God We Trust" are to the left. In addition, the date is under the portrait. The total weight of this coin is 0.0723 ounces.|
