Why order this Silver 1941-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
The Walking Liberty Half Dollar, or "Walker," as some collectors affectionately call it, is among the most iconic of American coins. This piece was struck in one of the most significant years of the 20th century, 1941. That is the year that Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States formally entered the Second World War. That war would become the bloodiest conflict in human history and establish the United States firmly as a preeminent world power.
Featuring the Classic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: On the obverse is Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design, for which the coin is named. Draped in the American flag, Liberty strides confidently in the early morning sun carrying branches in her left arm. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed along the top portion of the rim, while other obverse inscriptions include the date, "1941," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Adolph Weinman designed two of the most famous coins of the 20th century, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. In addition to these and other numismatic contributions, he also sculpted numerous works, some of which can still be seen in cities across the United States.
Reverse: An eagle spreads its wings proudly while perched on a mountain crag on the reverse. The statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed to the left. Along the rim are inscriptions that provide the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR."
