Powerful Designs by Adolph Weinman and John Mercanti

Obverse: Adolph Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design graces the obverse. She is draped in the American flag as she carries branches in the early morning sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," joins the date, "1987," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," among the obverse inscriptions. Adolph Weinman was a prolific sculptor, whose work remains on display in numerous American cities. His most important numismatic contributions were the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime.

Reverse: The reverse features an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. Designed by John Mercanti, it consists of an eagle protecting a union shield and thirteen stars, which are arranged in a triangular formation. John Mercanti was the US Mint's twelfth Chief Engraver. He spent almost four decades with the institution in total, during which time he designed more coins and medals than anyone else in American history.
