  • Description:

    The 1919-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in good to very good condition, with severe wear on both sides of the coin but will still a readable date. The infamous San Francisco Mint, which is dated all the way back to the California gold rushes, is one of those mints. This west coast-based mint was established to help prospectors turn their mined treasure into currency. In just its first year in production, the San Francisco Mint turned $4 million worth of gold into coins! Of course, it was also a part of popular silver coin series, such as the Morgan and the Walking Liberty. The San Francisco Mint produced a large quantity of Walking Liberty Half Dollars in 1919, lending to its accessibility and low premiums.

    A collector can simply look through all of the coin series that has passed through the US Mint's doors, since 1792, and see the inspiration behind each design. Lady Liberty has become a muse to US currency, constantly being updated in her appearance on the coinage. Picturing just her portrait became a trend until a German-American sculptor changed the trend forever. When the Mint Director, Robert W. Woolley, was allowed to change the design for the Barber half dollar, quarter, and dime, he opted to turn to the Commission of Fine Arts for a winner. Adolph A. Weinman not only won the competition but walked away with a deal to design both the new half dollar and dime. Weinman desired to portray Liberty as youthful on both coins and her depiction is stunning on the Walking Liberty.
