Denver Mint Barber Silver Dime

 E-mail this product to a friend


100 years ago in the early 20th century, the Barber silver Dime was America’s 10-cent coin.  It was named after its designer, Charles E. Barber, who was Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, and is one of the most famous and beautiful classic U.S. silver coins.

• This coin was struck at the U.S. Mint in Denver, which opened in 1906. The last Barber Dime was made in Denver in 1914, so each coin is now at least 100 years old.  The Denver coin is among the scarcest and most sought-after of all Barber Dimes.

• Barber Dimes made in Denver feature a small “D” mint mark on the reverse, below the wreath.

• All Barber Dimes were struck in 90% silver, a level of precious metal not seen in regular U.S. coins for half a century.

• The total number of Barber Dimes made in Denver from 1906 to 1914 was about the same as the number of Roosevelt Dimes made every 11 days in 2012 … but just a fraction of the Barber Dimes have survived.

• Vast numbers of Barber Dimes were worn out in circulation long ago or have been melted for the precious silver, leaving few for today’s collectors.

• The obverse of the coin shows Liberty, while the reverse has a wreath and the denomination.
