Patriotic Eagle Design by Adolph Weinman

Obverse: Like the reverse, the obverse was designed by Adolph Weinman. It features an American flag draped Liberty carrying laurel and oak branches, which represent civilian and military honors, as she extends her right hand to greet the new day. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1943," are also inscribed on this face. Besides designing this coin, Adolph Weinman also designed the Mercury Dime as well as medals. He was also a sculptor, and many pieces that he design can still be seen in a variety of American cities.

Reverse: An eagle spreads its wings while perched on a mountain crag on Weinman's reverse. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed to the left. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR."
