In 2016, the U.S. Mint marked the centennial anniversary of three numismatic icons with the release of three gold coins.
- Mercury Dime 2016 Centennial Gold Coin
- Standing Liberty 2016 Centennial Gold Coin
- Walking Liberty 2016 Centennial Gold Coin
The Mercury Dime Centennial Gold Coin is the first of three 24-karat gold coins the Mint issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of three classic coin designs first issued in 1916. The coin features Adolph A. Weinman’s original “Winged Liberty” design. This gold dime coin is commonly referred to as the Mercury Dime because of Liberty’s resemblance to the Roman god.
The release of the Standing Liberty Quarter celebrates Hermon A. MacNeil’s original “Standing Liberty” quarter design.
