  • Description:

    The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1946-D MS65 NGC was minted by the Denver Mint and graded by NGC. The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1946-D MS65 NGC has received the ideal grade of MS65 and is permanently preserved in an official certified holder. MS65 is considered the second highest grade for the Walking Liberty, causing higher minted coins to carry more numismatic value. 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. In 1918, the Denver Mint produced an average amount of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, lending to an accessible and affordable coin for everyone.

    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, after the barrage of the Barber designs on the dime, quarter, and half dollars. 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.
