There are few symbols of American freedom that are more powerful than the Statue of Liberty. Perched in New York Harbor for more than 130 years, Lady Liberty served as the first face for millions of immigrants seeking a better life in America. Her light was always held aloft, offering a beacon in the night for those seeking freedom. The Great American Mint and Refinery borrows one of the classic American coin designs for use on its 1/2 oz Walking Liberty Silver Round. These rounds feature the same imagery first seen on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 and contain 99.9% silver.
- Contains 1/2 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Minted at the Great American Mint.
- Features the famous Walking Liberty design created by Adolph A. Weinman.
Adolph A. Weinman first introduced America to the Walking Liberty design on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, minted between 1916 and 1947. The same design is featured on the official silver bullion coin of the United States, the Silver American Eagle. This silver round features Lady Liberty on the obverse side, and a bald eagle on the reverse.
On the obverse side of the 1/2 oz Great American Mint Walking Liberty Silver round is an adaptation of Weinman’s classic design. In this depiction, Lady Liberty is walking toward the setting sun with an American flag as her robe, and branches of laurel and oak in her hand. The branches are symbolic of US civil and military glory. Engravings on this side include “Liberty” and “In God We Trust.”
The reverse side of the round features a bald eagle perched atop a rocky cliff, with its wings set back in anticipation for flight. Engravings on this side of the round include “Great American Mint” and “1/2 Troy Oz .999 Fine Silver.”
