Overview

In 1915, United States Mint Director Robert W. Woolley commissioned three noted sculptors to design three silver coins – the Mercury dime, the Standing Liberty quarter and the Walking Liberty half dollar (AKA “Liberty Walking" or “Walker). A. A. Weinman was awarded the designs for both the dime and the half dollar.

Design

The coin’s obverse (front) shows Lady Liberty cloaked in the U.S. flag and walking toward a new day, carrying laurel and oak branches. “IN GOD WE TRUST” is right of her calf. The Walking Liberty half dollars are the last regular-issue silver coins with Lady Liberty, but the United States Mint copied the design for its silver American Eagle bullion coins. The reverse has an American bald eagle with spread wings. Weinman’s initials, AAW, are under its wing tip. The eagle perches on a rocky crag with pine sapling growing in the cracks. The mint mark is below the pine sapling for all coins struck after 1917, before which it was on the obverse, under the motto.

Minting

Walking Liberty half dollars were minted from 1916-1947, except for 1922, 1924-26 and 1930-32.

Valuation factors include, but are not limited to, speculative interest, collector and investor demand, available supply, industry promotions, perceived value, economic conditions, and other factors we deem relevant.
