The Liberty Seated Dime was produced for more than five decades at four different mint facilities with numerous design changes taking place during the course of the series. Mintage levels covered an extremely wide range.
The lowest mintages for the series occurred at the Philadelphia Mint during the years surrounding the Civil War, culminating at the absolute low of 6,000 pieces struck during 1867. A unique rarity for the series also exists with the 1873-CC No Arrows Liberty Seated Dime. The Carson City Mint had initially struck 12,400 examples of the coin, however after a change in the standard weight, all of these pieces were melted except for one known example.
During the series there are six different issues with a mintage greater than ten million. The first occurred for the 1853 dime with arrows at 12,078,010. Production was higher following a decrease in the standard weight for the denomination. The other five high mintage issues occur later in the series after the final design modification placed the legend on the obverse of the coin.
The mintages for each issue of the Liberty Seated Dime series appear following with headings to denote the significant design changes.
