Traditional Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
The obverse features Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design, which featured on the half dollar from 1916-1947. An American flag is draped over Liberty, who strides confidently toward the left side of the coin. Liberty also wears a Phrygian cap, which is a symbol of freedom. In her left hand, she carries laurel and oak branches, symbols of civilian and military honors, respectively. Her left hand is extended in front of her, as though she is greeting the new day as the morning sun emerges below.
The reverse image is the work of John Mercanti. Modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States, it features an eagle guarding a union shield. In the bird's beak is a ribbon that bears the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). It also holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The former represent America's readiness to defend her values while the latter indicates a preference for peace. Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, are arranged in a triangular formation at the top.
