Why buy this 1942-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
Step back in time to the Second World War with this 1942-D Walking Liberty half dollar. The coin's obverse proved so popular that it was revived decades after the last issue of this series in 1947 for the Silver Eagle series in 1986. This piece was one of 10,973,800 struck at the Denver Mint and bears that mint's "D" mint mark. It was struck from 12.5 g of .900 fine silver and is in great condition for a coin of its type.
Iconic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Liberty carries laurel branches, symbols of civilian honors, and oak branches, symbols of military ones, in her left hand as she strides toward the left side of the coin. With her right hand, she presents the holder with the new day as the sun rises from beyond the horizon. Part of the flag in which she is draped waves behind her. "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "1942" are inscribed on this face.
An eagle is perched on a rocky crag on the reverse, which was also designed by Weinman. A sapling of mountain pine, which represents American, springs from the rock. Inscriptions on this face read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), and "HALF DOLLAR."
This coin earned a GEM Uncirculated grade of Mint State 65 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade indicates that the coin was well struck.
