  • Description:

    With the Philadelphia Mint over producing the 1936 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the Denver Mint made their coin more collectible by minting much less. The 1936-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar contains a very low mintage and is in almost uncirculated condition. Almost uncirculated contains slight, almost unnoticeable amounts of wear, and does not contain the original mint shine. Marking all of their coins with the "D" mint-mark, the Denver Mint stands today as the leading coin producer in the world and was established in 1906. Being established only in 1906, the Denver Mint was able to fully participate in the Walking Liberty Half Dollar collection from start to finish, since it has been a working mint for ten years.

    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.
