  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty Halves VF-XF Roll consists of 20 coins, secured in a coin tube. The coins, in this roll, have varied conditions, starting at Very Fine and extending to Extra Fine. There are minuscule differences between the two grades; Very Fine's details are just going to be a little more worn than the Extra Fine coins. A collector can simply look through all of the coin series that has passed through the US Mint's doors, since 1792, and see the inspiration behind each design. Lady Liberty has become a muse to US currency, constantly being updated in her appearance on the coinage. Picturing just her portrait became a trend until a German-American sculptor changed the trend forever. When the Mint Director, Robert W. Woolley, was allowed to change the design for the Barber half dollar, quarter, and dime, he opted to turn to the Commission of Fine Arts for a winner. Adolph A. Weinman not only won the competition but walked away with a deal to design both the new half dollar and dime. Weinman desired to portray Liberty as youthful on both coins and her depiction is stunning on the Walking Liberty.

    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. 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.
