Why purchase this 1942-S Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar?
World War II shaped the world for more than half a century. Among the most important events of the year were the invention of napalm and the internment of over 120,000 Japanese Americans. This Walking Liberty Half Dollar, part of one of the most popular series in American numismatic history, offers a special connection with that troubled era.
Exquisite Eagle Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Both faces of this coin were designed by Adolph Weinman. On the obverse, Liberty, draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, carries branches that represent honors bestowed upon civilians and members of the military. The morning sun rises on the left. Obverse inscriptions read, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "1942."
Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle spreads its wings while perched on a mountain crag. A mountain pine sapling that extends from a crack in the rock represents the United States. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim, while the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is on the left. Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known historic American coins, this Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime, as well as other numismatic pieces. HIs artistic talent extended beyond numismatics, though, and many of his sculptures remain on display in cities across America.
