While our supply of these highly desired coins is limited, we are pleased to have them available for your collection.
The Walking Liberty image on the obverse side of the coin has proved to be a favorite design for collectors of coinage because of its beauty. It was designed in 1916 by Adolph A Weinman to replace the Charles C. Barber Half Dollar that had been in production since 1892. Weinman’s design was influenced by a French coin design named “The Sower,” which was designed by Oscar Roty in 1897. The original model for the image was Charlotte Ragot.
The Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted from 1916 until 1947, when the design was reluctantly retired because its high relief made it a difficult coin to strike. But the popularity of the design prevailed, and was updated with a lower relief profile for the 1986 American Silver Eagle coin, and currently remains in mint.
The reverse side of the coin bears a very popular image that has been adapted for use as the Great Seal of the United States. The foundations of this image first appeared in 1840, designed by Christian Gobrecht for the Seated Liberty Silver Dollar. The design has seen several updates and was perfected by John Mercanti for the 1986 American Silver Dollar.
