Created by A.A. Weinman and first issued in 1916, the beautiful 90% silver Liberty Walking half dollar spanned WWI, the Great Depression and WWII. The dramatic design shows Liberty striding confidently toward the rising sun, and a bald eagle ready for flight – echoing the nation's hopes during those challenging times.

  • Struck in 90% fine silver in 1942
  • Minted during the first full year of American involvement in WWII – when U.S. Navy victories at the Battles of the Coral Sea and Midway turned the tide of the war in the Pacific
  • A Liberty design so popular it was brought back on Silver American Eagles of 1986-date!
