Why order this 1944-S Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar?
In 1944, the world waged war in Europe and the Pacific. In an effort to gain a foothold in France, Allied forces launched the largest amphibious attack in history, the invasion of Normandy, also known as "D-Day." Though costly, the invasion was highly successful and ultimately drove Germany out of France and hastened the end of the war. This coin was struck in that extremely important year.
Featuring a Pair of Patriotic Designs by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Both faces of this coin were designed by Adolph Weinman. His obverse image shows Liberty, draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, carrying laurel and oak branches as the morning sun starts to rise. Inscriptions on this face include the central figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1944." Adolph Weinman designed the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime, two of the most important pieces of America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. He also made other numismatic contributions and sculpted a number of works that remain on display in cities across America today.
Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle stands perched on a mountain crag spreading its wings. The statutory inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is set off to the left. Along the rim are inscriptions of the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR.'
