Design of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar
The obverse of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar was designed by Adolph Weinman. Lady Liberty, draped in the American flag, is walking toward the left side of the coin. She carries symbols of civilian and military honors, branches of laurel and oak, in her left hand, while her right hand extends to the upper left of the coin. The sun sets behind a mountain on the horizon in the lower left. The date of the coin is inscribed under Liberty’s right foot, while the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” appears over the left. Her name, “LIBERTY,” arches over the scene.
On the reverse, which was also designed by Weinman, an eagle is perched atop a mountain with its wings partially spread. To the bird’s left is an olive branch, a symbol of peace, and an inscription of the motto that appears on the Great Seal of the United States, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” the country of issue, is inscribed along the rim at the top, while the face value, “HALF DOLLAR,” is noted below the eagle’s perch. Just to the right of that is an inscription with the letters “AW” on top of each other, which are the initials of the designer. Coins minted in 1916 may have Mint marks on the obverse, but coins from later years have their Mint marks under the olive branch on the reverse.
