  • Description:

    The elevated version of Liberty is still considered one of the most stunning renditions of all time. 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. Although 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. The 1943-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in almost uncirculated condition, exhibiting very slight amounts of wear. AU coins do not have the original brilliant luster but still contain a shine on the coin. The 1943-D is a part of a large mintage, lending to its accessibility and lower premiums.

    The Denver Mint stands today as the lead coin producer in the world. Since the Denver Mint was established much later than the other mints, its participation in major coin collections was limited causing collectors to put any silver coin with a "D" mint-mark at the top of their collecting list. In 1921, the Denver joined forces with its sister branches to help produce the Morgan silver dollar, that was soon changed to the Peace silver dollar. Only established in 1906, the Denver Mint mainly focused on commemorative coins but also participated in the Walking Liberty Half Dollar production. The Walking Liberty Half Dollars are not just sought after by coin collectors but also investors. Most coins before 1964 were made with 90% silver, making them an investment commodity today.
