  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty Half Dollar was produced from 1916-1947 and is still known to be one of the most stunning pieces every created by the US Mint. Even though it was minted for over 30 years, it gave the mint great trouble where the die was concerned. A less detailed and easier to strike Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar replaced the Walking Liberty. The modern American Silver Eagle bullion coin was inspired by the Walking Liberty and is admired by collectors and investors universally. Lady Liberty is beautifully dressed in a Grecian robe, holding her hand out while the other is holding olive branches and underneath her sandaled feet is the date of mintage. The reverse features a prideful eagle, confidently perched on a branch with its wings outstretched. The German-American sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman, is responsible for such a flawless design and has other designs still being commemorated throughout the US, such as his Mercury dime.

    The 1943-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in good to very good condition, containing heavy wear, on both sides of the coin, and has a readable date. The San Francisco Mint has mint-marked its coins with a "S" on the reverse of the Walking Liberty. The San Francisco Mint also holds a large amount of history, since it still produces coins currently. When the California Gold Rushes were happening, the US needed a mint on the West-Coast to help turn the gold into coins. The San Francisco Mint was the solution and outgrew its first building in just the first year of production. Among all of the mints that have come and gone, the San Francisco Mint has always upheld its reputation of high quality control and strong strikes.
