Featuring Adolph Weinman's Classic Walking Liberty Design
The coin's obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty is the picture of patriotism as she strides to the left side of the coin draped in the American flag. On her head is a Phrygian cap, which identifies her as a freed slave. She carries laurel and oak branches in her left arm while extending her right hand in front of her above the morning sun, which is emerging from beyond the horizon. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over her, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and date, "2006," are also inscribed on this face.
The reverse bears John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States, which he specifically created for this series. An eagle guards a union shield under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. In its beak the bird holds a ribbon that bears the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). The eagle also holds arrows, symbols of America's willingness to defend her values, and an olive branch, which expresses a desire for peace, in its talons. This design is encircled by rim inscriptions that note the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
