1916 was the year when the Barber Half Dollar, Quarter, and Dime were replaced by newly designed coinage. The United States mint issued the new Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Winged Liberty Head/Mercury Dime. These three designs are some of most cherished designs by coin collectors from all age groups. To celebrate the mints 100-year anniversary of these iconic issues. The West Point Mint struck all three denominations in 24K or .9999 fine gold.

The first issue released was the Winged Liberty Head/Mercury dime on April 21st, 2016 which weighs 1/10th of an ounce or 3.1 grams. The issue was extremely popular and sold out within minutes after the issue was released by The United States Mint. The total mintage was 125,000
