Mercury Dime Anklet
Silver “Mercury” dimes, actually Lady Liberty dimes, were minted between 1916 and 1945 with the image of Liberty wearing a winged cap. This image was mistakenly thought to be Mercury, the Roman God of Communication, and that is the name that has stuck.
In conjure and hoodoo, these dimes are believed to be a powerful curio for protection, wealth and luck. A leap year dime is said to be especially lucky.
One of the traditional ways they are used in Southern Hoodoo is as a protective amulet tied around the ankle with red thread. They are also pressed into candles, used in mojo bags, or placed in one’s shoe.
