Why add this Silver 1944-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar to your collection?
In 1944, the United States and most of the world were facing the existential threat of Nazi Germany. To turn the tide of the war, the Allies organized the largest amphibious invasion in history, which took place on what is known simply as "D-Day." This coin was struck at the Denver Mint in that historic year and provides a poignant connection with one of the most important events in world history.
Famous Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Like the reverse, the obverse was designed by Adolph Weinman. The morning sun begins to rise, shining on an American flag draped Liberty as she carries laurel and oak branches. Her image is joined by three inscriptions, which note her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1944." Adolph Weinman designed two of the most important pieces of America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. Besides making these and other numismatic contributions, he was also a sculptor, and visitors to many cities in the United States can see his work on display to this day.
Reverse: The reverse bears an image of a proud eagle perched on a mountain crag with its wings out. A mountain pine sapling, a symbol of the issuing nation, extends from a crack in the rock. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim, while "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is on the left.
Beautifully Preserved MS65
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) determined that this coin is in Mint State 65 condition. That means that the coin was struck well.
