Classic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman designed both faces of this coin. Weinman is most famous for this series and the Mercury Dime. In addition to his numismatic work, he also designed many sculptures, some of which remain on display in major American cities. Obverse: The obverse bears the patriotic Walking Liberty design. The morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon as an American flag-draped Liberty carries branches in the foreground. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1943."
Reverse: An eagle proudly spreads its wings perched upon a mountain crag on the reverse. To the left is the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR," are inscribed along the rim.
