Avid coin collectors are certain to appreciate how closely this round resembles the original Capped Bust Half Dollar. On the front of the round is Kneass’s classically inspired portrayal of Lady Liberty. She is depicted in profile from the bustline upward with the fabric of her toga draped over her shoulders. Set atop her cascading tresses is the eponymous Phrygian cap and an inscribed coronet bearing her name. These headpieces symbolize the freedom of thought and expression that so many have come to associate with the United States. Lastly, serving as a finishing touch to this beautifully rendered portrait is a series of thirteen stars in honor of the original colonies.
The reverse features a rendition of Kneass’s Heraldic Eagle design. However, instead of a bald eagle carrying a shield, the image has been simplified to a winged shield. It is depicted soaring over the abbreviation, “USA” and an unfurling scroll. Positioned directly above the shield is the nation’s flag, while to its left and right are a set of three stars. The purity and weight of each round have also been engraved unto the round’s border for verification and convenience.
