  • Description:

    The 1946 Walking Liberty Half Dollar is another highly minted coin, from the Philadelphia Mint, and is in good to very good condition. Lacking great detail and exhibiting severe wear, the 1946 half dollar still has a readable date and will be protected in a coin flip during shipment. The Mint Act officially announced the opening of the Philadelphia Mint and also instituted guidelines for the newly minted currency. A dollar decimal system would be used to assign the currency with legal tender values. Also, an emblematic symbol of liberty must be included on US currency, hence why so many adaptations of Liberty have been used.

    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. Weinman wanted to portray Liberty as young and he did just that in perhaps the most beautiful coin in history. The fire to collect these historical beauties hasn't diminished among collectors and investors are even enjoying the 90% numismatic value of these gems.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. 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.
