  • Description:

    The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1944-D MS65 NGC contains an average mintage but earned a high grade by NGC. Collectors love and trust NGC for its impeccable grading techniques and appealing packaging. NGC also preserves its certified coins by placing them in air-sealed official holders, labeled with the coin's earned grade. Investing in certified coins increases the numismatic value of the coin and ensures an undebatable grade. The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1944-D MS65 NGC was minted by the Denver Mint and carries a "D" mint-mark. When the Denver Mint was the second youngest mint to be built in 1906, it had no idea it would hold the title of lead coin producer a century later.

    After the barrage of the Barber designs on the dime, quarter, and half dollars, the new Mint Engraver, Robert W. Woolley, discovered it was the law to discontinue a coin series after it has been produced for 25 years. 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.
