Patriotic Liberty & Eagle Designs by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The coin's obverse features the design for which the coin is named, Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty. Draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, Liberty carries laurel and oak branches as the morning sun begins to emerge from beyond the horizon. Inscriptions oh this face include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1941." Adolph Weinman's biggest numismatic contributions were this coin and the Mercury Dime, although he also designed medals. He sculpted numerous works that can still be seen in a variety of American cities.
Reverse: On the reverse, which was also designed by Weinman, an eagle rests on a mountain crag. The United States are represented by a mountain pine sapling that extends from a crack in the rock. Reverse inscriptions include a second statutory motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM," the name of the country that issued the coin, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,' and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR."
