  • Description:

    Being the last year the infamous San Francisco Mint produced the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the 1946-S Half Dollar is a must for many collectors. The mintage falls on the lower end of the spectrum, becoming a difficult coin to find in higher grades. The 1946-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in almost uncirculated condition, exibiting little amounts of wear on the coin but still contains the original shine. Dated all the way back to the California gold rushes, the San Francisco Mint still astounds coin collectors with their high quality control during production. This west coast-based mint was established to help prospectors turn their mined treasure into currency. In just its first year in production, the San Francisco Mint turned $4 million worth of gold into coins! Of course, it was also a part of popular silver coin series, such as the Morgan and the Walking Liberty.

    On the obverse of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Liberty is depicted as the Grecian goddess she is. She is delicately draped in a light-weight robe, her feet sandaled, and her arm is holding olive branches. The rising sun encroaches behind her, while the word "Liberty" hangs over her head. Underneath her feet is also the coin's date of mintage. The reverse reveals a large eagle, perched on a branch. Along with its outstretched wings, the coin's denomination is also inscribed on the reverse.The Walking Liberty design is still viewed as one of the most stunning designs ever on a coin and inspired the current American Silver Eagle bullion coin. Adolph A. Weinman was the German-American sculptor chosen to redesign the half dollar and the dime after the reign of the Barber design. Weinman is also responsible for the Mercury dime and other commemorative coin designs throughout the US.
