  • Description:

    The 1939-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar contains an average mintage and was minted by the Denver Mint. The Denver Mint elegantly marked all of their coins with a simple, "D" mint-mark on the reverse of the Walking Liberty. The 1939-D is in good to very good condition, exhibiting large amounts of wear with a readable date. The Walking Liberty's obverse features the grecian Goddess, draped in a flowing robe, with one arm reaching out in invitation and the other holding a bundle of olive branches. The reverse portrays a tall and brave eagle, perched on a branch.

    The Walking Liberty has inspired many designs through the years and more recently, the American Silver Eagle. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar featured the first design, in half dollar history, to depict Liberty's full body. On the preceding half dollars, Liberty's facial portrait was constantly being reinvented but nobody dared to adapt her body onto a coin. Adolph A. Weinman was the sculptor behind the stunning Liberty design and was assigned the task of changing the dime's design as well. Both of Weinman's designs have gone down in history as some of the most successful designs and are still widely collected among serious collectors nationwide.
