Mercury dime production was down somewhat in 1937 as compared to the 100 million-plus pieces that were struck in 1936, though plenty of 10-cent coins still rolled off the U.S. Mint’s presses. In fact, more than 80 million Mercury dimes were made in 1937, which is regarded by Mercury dime connoisseurs as a common year for the series.

Here’s a look at mintage figures and values for 1937 Mercury dimes:

  • 1937, 56,860,000; $4

  • 1937 proof, 5,756; $900

  • 1937-D, 14,146,000; $6

  • 1937-S, 9,740,000; $5

*Values are for coins in a grade of Extremely Fine-40, unless otherwise noted.

All of the regular-issue 1937 Mercury dimes can be had for under $50 each in a grade of MS-65, though expect to pay extra for a Mercury dime specimen with fully split bands (FSB), a designation which refers to Mercuries that on the reverse show a complete horizontal line in each of the bands on the fasces.

When it comes to the 1937 proof Mercury dime, you may wish to take a little extra time and spend a few extra bucks to locate a piece that is crisp, with mirror-like surfaces and great overall eye appeal.
