Why order this Silver 1945 Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
Few coins in American history are as beloved as the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. This piece comes from near the end of its run, which ended in 1947. The coin was struck in the Philadelphia Mint, where the United States began, in 1945, the year that it became considered a preeminent world power following its role in the Allied victory in World War II.
Featuring a Patriotic Eagle Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Both faces of this coin bear designs that were created by Adolph Weinman. On the obverse, Liberty strides confidently carrying laurel and oak branches in her left arm while extending her right hand as if to greet the morning sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," spreads throughout the top half of the rim, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1945," are also included on this face. Adolph Weinman designed the Mercury Dime and this Walking Liberty Half Dollar, as well as medals. In addition to his numismatic work, he also sculpted numerous pieces, some of which can still be seen in a variety of American cities.
Reverse: The reverse image shows an eagle spreading its wings while perched on a mountain crag. The statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed to the left. Along the rims are inscriptions of the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "HALF DOLLAR."
