Why purchase this stunning 1947 Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin?
The U.S. Mint introduced the Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar series in 1916. The coin was produced through the Great Depression and both World Wars, with the conclusion of the series marked by the 1947 release. Imagery for the series is the work of sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, who is credited with the production of multiple medallic and architectural masterpieces in the first half of the 20th century.
