Mercury Dimes Values

All Mercury Dimes are worth at least ten times their face value unless they are badly damaged or almost totally worn out. Some Mercury Dimes, called key dates, are worth hundreds, even thousands of times their face value! Find out how much your dimes are worth in this coin values table. Keep in mind that these are guidelines. To get today's current market prices, you should contact a coin dealer.

The prices in this table are approximately what a dealer will give you for average grade coins of the type typically found in old jars, shoe boxes, Whitman folders, dealer "unsorted lots," etc. (See image above for an example of "average grade.")   If your coins are still uncirculated, or haven't been worn much, the value could be 2 to 3 times as high or more.  The mint mark, if the coin has one, is on the reverse, near the bottom, in the space to the right of the E in ONE.

Notes:
*There is an overpunched date error for 1942, where the 2 was punched over a 1941 die.

Sources include the "Blue Book Handbook of U.S. Coins," the Coin Dealer Newsletter (aka Greysheet),  and my own personal knowledge of Mercury Dime prices.  Mercury Dime photo by Susan Headley.

If you have a lot of coins to look up values for, and want to know the realistic prices that dealers will pay you, I recommend the Blue Book of U.S. Coin Values, which is the wholesale price guide that dealers use.  It costs about $10 and is well-worth the small investment.  Compare prices for the Blue Book.
