Striking Eagle & Walking Liberty Designs by Adolph Weinman

Obverse: Adolph Weinman designed both the obverse and reverse. His obverse image shows Liberty, draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, carrying branches as the morning sun starts to rise. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is set off to the right. The date, "1942," is noted at the bottom of this face.

Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle stands proudly with its wings spread on a mountain crag. A mountain pine sapling representing the United States emerges from a crack in the rock. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim above and below the bird, respectively, while the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is on the left. Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known historic American coins, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. His other artistic contributions include medal designs and sculptures.
