  • Description:

    With an overproduction of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, in 1941, the Philadelphia Mint lent a hand in making this date incredibly accessible in all dates. The 1941 Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in good to very good condition, with severe wear compromising the beautiful detail of main images, such as Liberty's elegant robe or the eagle on the reverse. The Mint Act officially announced the opening of the Philadelphia Mint and also instituted guidelines for the newly minted currency. A dollar decimal system would be used to assign the currency with legal tender values. Also, an emblematic symbol of liberty must be included on US currency, hence why so many adaptations of Liberty have been used.

    Even though the Walking Liberty design has become quite common today, it wasn't always that way. In fact, most depictions of Liberty used to entail just her head, leaving out her entire body. When Adolph A. Weinman was asked to create a new design for the half dollar, he surprised everyone with a new and updated design. Instead of Liberty stiffly posing for a portrait, she is roaming free wearing only a light-weight robe. She holds olive branches as she invites warriors to join her in battle. This elevated version of Liberty is still considered one of the most stunning renditions of all time. The reverse pictures an eagle, perched with its wings outstretched. Weinman wanted to portray Liberty as young and he did just that in perhaps the most beautiful coin in history. The fire to collect these historical beauties hasn't diminished among collectors and investors are even enjoying the 90% numismatic value of these coins.
