What is the Mercator™ font?
Mercator Set designed by Arthur Baker, USA
Gerardus Mercator was born in the Netherlands in 1512. His name has become synonymous with the Mercator map projection scheme where our globe is represented as a flat image creating some distortion in the Northern and Southern extremities. It ultimately presents a map of the world with great clarity. As a man of the Renaissance, Mercator also had an interest in such subjects as calligraphy. More…
Contemporary American calligrapher Arthur Baker has studied the penmanship of Mercator and has created this font based on the lettering used on Mercator’s famous world map.
The Mercator set includes alternate Swashes which can be used for specific letters when a more elaborate lettering effect is desired.
Mercator is licensed for release through P22 type foundry Inc./International House of Fonts.

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that Mercator™ is not a free font.
You won't be able to find Mercator™ as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Mercator™ HERE. You can find some other great options here on Jorgensen-fonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Mercator™ are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
If you really want Mercator™ and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com.

Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
