  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty Half Dollar series is one of the first series for the Denver Mint to fully start and finish. The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1945-D MS65 PCGS has earned a coveted grade of MS65, which is considered the second highest grade the Walking Libs have ever received. BU Walking Liberty half dollars can earn a grade ranging from MS60-MS70 on the BU grading scale. Through the last few decades, these coins haven't received anything higher than MS66, making the middle of the grading scale the higher end. Collectors enjoy Certified Walking Liberty half dollars because of their airtight sealed holders, and the increased numismatic value. Since it was established in 1906, the Denver Mint either missed out on some coin series or entered in the middle of them. Marking all of their coins with the "D" mint-mark, the Denver Mint stands today as the leading coin producer in the world.

    The Mint Director, Robert W. Woolley, learned that a coin design could only be changed every 25 years, it was time to change the Barber design on the dimes, quarters, and half dollars. Like other directors in the past, Woolley reached out to local artists and held a competition for the new design. Sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman, was chosen to not only change the half dollar design but also the dime design as well. These two designs changed Weinman's career and are still considered extremely successful 100 years later. Weinman's depiction of Liberty is still used today, on the American Silver Eagle bullion coin.
