Iconic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman's classic Walking Liberty design, which appeared on the half dollar from 1916-1947, is on the obverse. Liberty carries branches of laurel and oak, which have long been symbols of civilian and military honors, respectively. To the left, the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon.
An eagle guards a union shield on John Mercanti's reverse. The eagle spreads its wings to the side and clutches arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. It also has a ribbon with the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM" in its beak. Thirteen stars above the bird's head represent the original states.
