Featuring the Classic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Adolph Weinman's obverse design shows Liberty carrying laurel and oak branches against a backdrop of the morning sun. The design comes from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman was one of the most consequential contributors to America's numismatic rebirth in the early 1900s. His most famous coins were the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. He was also a sculptor, and many of his works are on display in different American cities.
Reverse: On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti. Under thirteen stars, which represent the original states, an eagle protects a union shield while holding arrows and an olive branch. IThe image is encircled by rim inscriptions that read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent more than three and a half decades with the US Mint, including time as its Chief Engraver. He has created more designs for coins and medals than anyone else in American history.
