  • Description:

    At the time, 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.

    The Circulated Walking Liberty Half Dollar Set 1916-1947 contains 65 coins, including mint-marks and comes packaged in a Dansco album. The coins are considered to be in circulated condition and can range anywhere from About Good to Extra Fine.
