Because of the resemblance to the Roman god, Mercury, the coin became known popularly as the "Mercury Head" Dime. The design for the series was created by Adolph A Weinman, who would also design the popular Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The obverse of the dime features the head of Liberty, facing left. Her hair is pulled up under a winged cap, which gives the impression of the winged god Mercury. The inscriptions include "Liberty", "In God We Trust", and the date. The reverse of the coin features Roman fasces with an olive branch behind. The reverse inscriptions include "United States of America", "E Pluribus Unum", and "One Dime"
