  • Description:

    The 1945-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted by the Denver Mint and contains an average mintage. With a heavily worn surface, especially where Lady Liberty is concerned, the 1945-D is considered to be in good to very good condition. Collectors usually take advantage of the lower premiums for good to very good coins for higher mintage dates. Newly established in 1906, the Denver Mint mainly focused on commemorative coins but also participated in the Walking Liberty Half Dollar production. 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. 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. The Denver Mint stands today as the lead coin producer in the world.

    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.
