  • Description:

    Known to be one of the most stunning coins every produced by the US Mint, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted from 1916-1947. 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 1946-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar is in brilliant uncirculated condition, with an unbreakable sheen flowing rim to rim. BU coins also should not have any signs of wear on the entire coin.The infamous San Francisco Mint, which is dated all the way back to the California gold rushes, is one of those mints. 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. The San Francisco Mint produced a large quantity of Walking Liberty Half Dollars in 1946, lending to its accessibility and low premiums.
