Why purchase this 1933-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
The U.S. Mint's Walking Liberty Half Dollar series was minted from 1916-1947, a span that encompassed the economic turbulence of both World Wars and the Great Depression. Coinage production during the early years of the Depression was sporadic. The half dollar coin experienced a lapse in minting from 1930-1932. Upon its return to production, it was the only silver coin struck for circulation by the U.S. Mint in 1933. The 1933 release was minted exclusively at the San Francisco branch; its reported mintage of only 1,786,000 coins is one of the lowest in the series.
Patriotic Designs by Adolph A. Weinman
Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse, gracefully walking towards the distant rising sun. She is wrapped in the folds of the American flag and cradling a bundle of long oak and laurel branches. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "1933."
A bald eagle with its wings lifted is depicted on the reverse, standing on a rock near an untamed growth of mountain pine. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "HALF DOLLAR" and San Francisco's Mint mark "S."
Circulated Silver Half Dollar
