  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty Half Dollar series is one of the first series for the Denver Mint to fully start and finish. Since it was established in 1906, the Denver Mint either missed out on some coin series or entered in the middle of them. The 1916-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar has one of the lowest mintages of the series, of just over one million minted in the first year. The 1916-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in good condition, exhibiting extreme wear on both sides of the coin. Good condition is also considered circulated condition, not having been preserved over the last one hundred years. 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.
