U.S. Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar (1935-1947) // Mint State Condition // American Premier Coinage Series // Wood Presentation Box
The American Walking Liberty half dollar was minted from 1916 to 1947. Today, they are seldom seen in circulation but are cherished by coin collectors and enthusiasts of American history alike. Offered here is a pleasant, mint-state coin hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of coins for quality and eye-appeal.
The Walking Liberty half dollar is yet another infamous coin engraved by Adolph A. Weinman, the designer of the Mercury dime. This graceful coin features Lady Liberty adorned in an American flag and striding towards the rising sun with her right arm outstretched, carrying branches of laurel and oak. The reverse features a powerful perched eagle with open wings and a sapling of Mountain Pine, symbolic of America. The design was exceptionally detailed compared to previous coins, which lead to persistent problems with sharpness of strike and production quality— accelerating its replacement by the Franklin half dollar in 1948. The lasting beauty of this unique design was immortalized in 1986 when the U.S. Mint chose to adopt the Walking Liberty obverse for the American Silver Eagle bullion coin, which has become one of the most widely distributed silver bullion coins in the world. Today, many Walking Liberty half dollar issues are scare in high grades and completion of an entire collection of these coins in uncirculated condition remains a formidable challenge for collectors and investors alike.
Each coin is housed in an airtight capsule and presented in a luxurious, plush-lined wood box with embossed metallic gold lettering, piano-black finish, and certificate of authenticity. The coin is unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine, dated between 1935 and 1947, and will match the exceptional mint-state quality of the one shown.
