Historic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
The obverse design comes from the Walking Liberty half dollar, which was issued from 1916-1947. Created by Adolph Weinman, it features an American flag draped Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap as she strides toward the left side of the coin. She carries laurel and oak branches, symbols of civilian and military honors, respectively, in her left hand while extending her right hand above the morning sun, as through presenting it to the holder.
On the reverse is a design created by John Mercanti. An adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States, it consists of an eagle protecting a union shield. In the eagle's talons are arrows, which symbolize America's preparedness to defend her values, and an olive branch, which indicates a preference for peace. The bird also holds a ribbon in its beak. That ribbon bears the phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). Also included in the design are thirteen stars, one for each of the original states.
