With around 85 million Mercury dimes produced that year, 1935 was a prolific year for the United States Mint. That was also the first year since 1931 that all three then-operating United States Mint branches (Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco) struck dimes, providing coin collectors with three separate regular-strike issues that year.

1935 Mercury dimes are generally quite common, as the mintage numbers below indicate:

  • 1935, 58,830,000 minted; $4

  • 1935-D, 10,477,000; $10

  • 1935-S, 15,840,000; $7

*Values are for coins in a grade of Extremely Fine-40.

The Denver-mint Mercury dime, which had the lowest mintage among the dimes issued that year, is fairly tough in the upper grades. In fact, a 1935-D Mercury dime costs about $100 in a grade of MS-65, though the Philadelphia and San Francisco issues can be had in a similar grade for a significantly lower price of only about $45 each. Fully split band (FSB) Mercury dimes are especially challenging to find in some instances, but individuals who can track down gem Mercury dimes that possess a sharp strike will benefit from having beautiful coins that are bound to only increase in value with the passing years.
