Patriotic Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman
The coin's obverse design, the Walking Liberty of Adolph Weinman, comes from the half dollar. Carrying branches of laurel and oak, which are symbols of honors given to civilians and military members, respectively, Liberty extends her right hand in front of her, as though she is presenting the sunrise, which is taking place on the horizon.
On the reverse is John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle holds a ribbon that bears the phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) in its beak as it guards a union shield. Above its head is a triangular arrangement of thirteen stars, symbols of the first states.
