There are few coins from American history that are more prized than the 90% Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, a student of sculptor and designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the Walking Liberty image is so popular that it lives on today on America’s official silver bullion coins.
Weinman’s Walking Liberty design made its debut on the 90% Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin in 1916. The coin was immediately lauded for its inspiring design and is considered one of the most important pieces from a golden age of American coinage. The Walking Liberty Half Dollars were minted from 1916 until 1947. Now, the Walking Liberty design lives on the obverse side of the Silver American Eagle. The latter coin is the official silver bullion coin of the United States.
On the obverse side of the 90% Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars is the image of Lady Liberty. Draped in the American flag, she can be seen striding toward the rising sun. In her left hand are olive and laurel branches, indicative of the civic and military power of the United States. Engravings include “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and the year of minting.
The reverse side of the coin features a bald eagle perched at the edge of a rocky cliff. The eagle’s wings are raised in anticipation of takeoff. Engravings around the eagle include “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “Half Dollar.”
