  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty Half Dollar had a rather sporadic production period, with the San Francisco Mint being the main mint for the series. The 1933-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted 4 years after the previous 1929-S coins, with a small mintage. The 1933-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted by the San Francisco Mint and is in good to very good condition. Collectors expect good to very good to contain heavy amounts of wear with a readable date. When the Walking Liberty Half Dollars were first conceived, they replaced the Barber design empire. The Mint Director, at the time, had learned that you can only change a coin's design every 25 years and the Barber design had just celebrated its birthday. Reaching out the local artists, the Mint Director found Adolph A. Weinman, who was chosen to design the new half dollar and dime. To this day, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar is known to be one of the most beautiful coins in history and is a favorite among collectors.

    Dated all the way back to the infamous California gold rushes, the San Francisco 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. On the obverse of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Liberty is depicted as the Grecian goddess she is. She is delicately draped in a light-weight robe, her feet sandaled, and her arm is holding olive branches. The rising sun encroaches behind her, while the word "Liberty" hangs over her head. Underneath her feet is also the coin's date of mintage. The reverse reveals a large eagle, perched on a branch. Along with its outstretched wings, the coin's denomination is also inscribed on the reverse.
