  • Description:

    The 1947-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar is the last of its series to be minted by the Denver Mint. Considered to be in brilliant uncirculated condition, the 1947-D exhibits no wear but a brilliant shine from rim to rim. Since the Walking Liberty Half Dollars are 90% silver, they will tarnish over time but the tarnish can easily be removed. Due to the 90% content, the Walking Liberty Half Dollars are also popular among silver investors since the 90% silver is dwindling. When the Denver Mint was the second youngest mint to be built in 1906, it had no idea it would hold the title of lead coin producer a century later. In 1947, the Denver Mint produced a smaller amount of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, lending to a more difficult coin to find in a high grade, such as BU.

    When the Walking Liberty Half Dollars were first conceived, they replaced the Barber design empire. The Mint Director, at the time, had learned that you can only change a coin's design every 25 years and the Barber design had just celebrated its birthday. Reaching out the local artists, the Mint Director found Adolph A. Weinman, who was chosen to design the new half dollar and dime. To this day, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar is known to be one of the most beautiful coins in history and is a favorite among collectors.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.
