In 1892 the dime, quarter, and half dollar denominations were redesigned. A Liberty Head motif common to all three denominations made its appearance the same year.

Known as the Barber dime, the ten-cent denomination featured on the obverse Miss Liberty facing right, her hair in a Phrygian cap and wearing a laurel wreath, with the word LIBERTY in tiny letters in a band above her forehead. The inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds, and the date is below.

The reverse is of the same design used earlier and features more
