Majestic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The iconic Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman graces the obverse. The morning sun is just emerging from beyond the horizon as an American flag draped Liberty carries laurel and oak branches. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "1941." Adolph Weinman sculpted numerous pieces that are currently displayed in a variety of American cities. His best known numismatic contributions were this coin and the Mercury Dime.
Reverse: Weinman's reverse design depicts an eagle spreading its wings while perched on a mountain crag. A mountain pine sapling, which represents the United States, emerges from the crag. The statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed to the left, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim.
