  • Description:

    When Mint Engraver, Robert W. Woolley, discovered it was the law to discontinue a coin series after it has been produced for 25 years, he decided to discontinue the Barber series. Woolley approached the Commission of Fine Arts to hold a competition for the new design on the half dollar and Weinman became the winner of designing the new dime and half dollar. Although the Walking Liberty design is considered one of the most stunning designs in coin history, the design itself was a struggle to strike. After 31 years in production, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar was replaced by the Franklin Half Dollar. The Walking Liberty's obverse displays a youthful Lady Liberty, aimlessly wandering the Earth and looking to recruit warriors. She carries olive branches as a sign of peace, while her sandaled feet stand about the coin's date of mintage. This astonishing design is what has been beloved by loyal coin collectors through the decades and inspires designs to this day.

    The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1938 MS65 PCGS has earned the extremely coveted grade of MS65, which falls on the higher end of the BU grading scale. Most BU Walking Libs can receive a grade between MS60-MS70, but anything above MS66 has become very rare. MS65 is viewed as one of the higher grades a BU Walking Liberty can receive. PCGS is a highly reputable grading agency, based in the US, and is the preferred grading company by many mints, dealers, and collectors. The Walking Liberty design is still viewed as one of the most stunning designs ever on a coin and inspired the current American Silver Eagle bullion coin. Adolph A. Weinman was the German-American sculptor chosen to redesign the half dollar and the dime after the reign of the Barber design. Weinman is also responsible for the Mercury dime and other commemorative coin designs throughout the US.
