Jaime Hernandez: The 1921-D Mercury Dime is a key date coin. It has the lowest mintage for any regular issue strike coin in the Mercury Dime series. Only the 1916-D has a lower mintage. Although the Mint struck 1,080,000 examples much fewer survive today. Possibly no more than 5,000 examples exist in total. In Uncirculated condition there might be about 1,000 examples known more or less. In MS65 condition or better, there are probably less than 2500 examples that remain. Very few examples exist in MS67 or higher.
