Three extremely valuable dimes and a rare Bicentennial quarter, each valued at $90 million, are still in circulation. 

The 1894-S Barber Dime is one such coin—a legendary numismatic rarity that commands astronomical prices.  

Minted in San Francisco in 1894, this dime is distinguished by its low mintage of only 24 pieces, making it one of the most coveted coins in American numismatics. 

The story behind the scarcity of the 1894-S Barber Dime adds to its mystique.

Historically, mintages were often dictated by demand, and dimes were not heavily circulated in the 1890s. 

As a result, only a handful were struck, primarily for the convenience of government officials and collectors.  

Today, this dime stands as a symbol of both craftsmanship and scarcity, capturing the imagination of collectors worldwide. 

The Mercury Dime, designed by renowned sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, is celebrated for its elegant design and historical significance.
