History and Description
Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins were designed by the German-American sculptor and engraver Adolphe A. Weinman. Each coin has a reeded edge and weight of 12.50g. Each coin also has a diameter of 30.00mm and has a composition of 90% silver / 10% copper.
The obverse sides of these coins features a full length view of Liberty with her flowing hair and gown. She has her arm outstretched toward the sunlit horizon. In her other arm are full branches of oak and laurel, which are symbols of American civil and military glories. Above her head is the word ‘Liberty.’ Below her is the year the coins have been minted. The obverse side of these coins shows the motto ‘In God We Trust.’
The coins’ reverse sides depict a bold American eagle. It is perched atop its mountain home with its wings outstretched. A small pine sapling grows from the perch. Engraved above the eagle are the words ‘United States of America.’ The coin’s denomination, ‘half dollar,’ appears beneath the eagle.
Walking Liberty coins have a face value of fifty cents. However, each is worth more in silver and has even more worth to their collectors. With their almost uncirculated condition, these coins are especially sought after by collectors.
