The coins feature the familiar Winged Liberty Head design that was used on the circulating dime from 1916 to 1945. The design reminded many of the Greek god Mercury, which gave rise to the nickname “Mercury Dime.” Each coin contains 1 Troy ounce of .9995 pure palladium and has the highly unusual $25 face value, plus a W mint mark, denoting it a product of the U.S. Mint at West Point.
