A genuine Mercury dime (minted 1916-1945), serves as a unique and historical pendant on this beautiful sterling silver necklace. Considered one of the most beautiful of all coins minted in the United States, it was designed in 1916 by Adolph Weinman and displays Liberty in a winged cap, symbolizing freedom of thought. On the reverse side is a Roman fasces with olive. It's securely mounted in a scored sterling bezel and slides freely on an eighteen-inch sterling snake chain with bead detail. Boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
