Why buy this Silver 1941-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
Affectionately referred to simply as "the Walker" by collectors, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar is among the most popular coins of the 20th century. This piece comes from 1941, the year that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States entered World War II. As such, this coin provides an important connection with one of the most significant years in American history.
Striking Eagle Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Adolph Weinman designed both the obverse and the reverse. On the obverse is Liberty, draped in the American flag, carrying branches in her left arm and extending her right arm forward as the morning sun starts to rise from beyond the horizon. Inscriptions on this face include the central figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1941." Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known coins of the 20th century, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. Besides these and other numismatic contributions, he was also a sculptor, and his work can still be seen in many American cities.
Reverse: An eagle rests on a mountain crag with its wings spread out to its sides on the reverse. The second statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," is inscribed to the left. Inscriptions along the rim provide the name of the country that issued the coin, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR."
