Adolph Weinman is considered to be one of the three classical master artists of the U.S. Mint.  His name has gone down in the history books with that of Augustus Saint Gaudens’ and James Earle Fraser.  Weinman’s beautiful “Mercury Dime”, being produced from 1916 to 1945, spanned the roaring twenties, the Great Depression, and World War II.  The design was not truly meant to depict the Roman god Mercury.  Weinman’s design was actually that of young Lady Liberty with her winged Phrygian cap.  However, the Mercury Dime name stuck and it still goes by that name to this very day.
