The coins were minted between 1892 and 1916 by the US Mint and were designed by the US Mint's Chief Engraver at the time, Charles Barber. In the early 1880s, when the United States Mint was prepared to replace the Seated Liberty design, Edward Leech, the Mint Director at the time, scheduled a design contest to discover fresh coinage designs.

The invited designers were not interested in the competition, however, since only the winner was given a money reward. Thus Leech moved to Barber to design the new coin, which resulted in the design of these Barber Dimes. After Barber's design was approved by Leech, they were sent to Benjamin Harrison, the President of the United States from 1889-1893, who in November 1891 signed off on the new coins. Each dime will contain .0715 troy ounces of pure silver, so in total the $5 Face Value will contain 3.575 troy ounces.

Barber dimes are sought out by collectors for various reasons. While prices may and do fluctuate, the value of these silver coins could rise in the coming years, due to their relatively limited availability in the market compared to other 90% silver coins. The fact that these coins were only minted for 25 years make these coins even more desirable to collectors.

These coins have been named for the coin's designer, Charles E. Barber. The notorious design features the magnificent Lady Liberty in a Phrygian cap. A very similar design is also featured on the Mercury Dimes, which was the Barber Dime's successor. The obverse will feature the previously mentioned Lady Liberty design with an olive wreath around her Phrygian cap. The year the coin was issued in is clearly marked at the bottom of the coin with dates ranging between 1892 and 1916, depending on the inventory at the time of shipment.

The reverse features an olive branch wreath surrounding the words “ONE DIME” in the center of the coin. The coin’s mintmark will be featured at the bottom of the coin as well.
