Why order this 1947-D Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar?
Few coins in American history are nearly as popular as the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. In fact, the coin even has an affectionate nickname, "the Walker." This piece was struck at the Denver Mint in the final year of the series, making it a fantastic keepsake for collectors who are nostalgic for the series.
Powerful Eagle Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Both this coin's obverse and reverse designs were created by Adolph Weinman. The obverse bears the iconic Walking Liberty image. The morning sun is beginning to rise as Liberty carries laurel and oak branches in the foreground. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1947." Coin collectors most closely associate the name "Adolph Weinman" with the two iconic coins that he designed, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. Other art enthusiasts, however, may know him better for his sculptures, many of which are still prominently displayed in cities across America.
Reverse: An eagle spreads its wings proudly while perched on a mountain crag on the reverse. Rim inscriptions note the name of the country that issued the coin, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and its face value, "HALF DOLLAR." The statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is included on the left.
