  • Description:

    When the Walking Liberty Half Dollar was incepted, the Mint Director at the time had waited the allotted 25 years until able to change the design. Following the successful Barber Half Dollar from Chief Mint Engraver, Charles Barber, the Walking Liberty design won in a friendly competition in the Commission of Fine Arts. 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. Since Lady Liberty was inspired by the Greek goddess, she is oftentimes depicted as such. 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. The Walking Liberty has inspired many designs through the years and more recently, the American Silver Eagle.

    The 1941-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar contains an average mintage and is marked with the letter "D." The Denver Mint elegantly marked all of their coins with a simple, "D" mint-mark on the reverse of the Walking Liberty, where you will find this coin's mint-mark. The 1941-D is in good to very good condition, exhibiting severe wear and compromising the main image details. Although it is very worn, the 1941-D half dollar's date is still readable. 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.
