Mercury was founded in Turin in 1932 and originally imported Märklin toys from Germany to Italy. Soon after World War II, the company introduced its own range of diecast model cars. The first models were in various scales between 1/40th to 1/50th, and a series of 1/48th scale models was introduced in 1954, but since the early 1960s, Mercury used the standard 1/43rd scale. A wide variety of model vehicles in other scales were also manufactured, such as trucks in 1/50th and 1/80th scale, cars in 1/66th ("Speedy" and "Micro" series) and 1/80th scale, scooters in 1/30th scale, construction and military vehicles and even ships and airplanes. The company got into financial difficulties in the 1970s and had to close down in 1980. From 1994 to 2007, re-editions of Mercury models from the 1950s and early 1960s were produced by the Scottoy company. Another series of similar re-editions was introduced by the Italian branch of the French publishing house Hachette in 2019.
