  • Description:

    The Philadelphia Mint produced an extremely large quantity of Walking Liberty Half Dollars in 1943. Since there are still so many accessible to the general public, the 1943 Walking Liberty Half Dollar comes with a very low premium for all grades. Considered to be in good to very good condition, the 1943 Walking Liberty contains extreme wear, with especially worn details around Lady Liberty. Although extremely circulated, good to very good coins still have a readable date. The Walking Liberty Half Dollars are made from 90% silver and can tarnish over time but the tarnish can easily removed if need be. Investors have also joined in collecting Walking Liberty Half Dollars, since the 90% silver is dwindling from the coin market.

    The Walking Liberty Half Dollar replaced the Barber design in 1916 and was minted for about 30 years after. Considered to be one of the most beautiful coin designs in history, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar was created by a German-American sculptor. As was tradition when a new coin design was needed, the US Mint Director resorted to a competition among young artists. Not only did Adolph A. Weinman win for the half dollar but he was also asked to design the new dime as well. Weinman has been quoted for wanting to depict Liberty in her youth, as a Grecian goddess, and he did just that with both designs. On the obverse, of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Liberty walks carefree in a lightweight, see-through robe. She carries olive branches in one arm while the other is reaching out in invitation. Underneath her sandaled feet is the coin's date of mintage. As the rising sun encroaches behind her, the word "Liberty" is inscribed above her head.
