Add historical and numismatic prominence to your collection with this lustrous Gem Uncirculated Liberty Walking half dollar struck in 90% silver at the Denver Mint in 1942. During that first full year of America’s involvement in World War II, the U.S. Navy stemmed the Japanese advance in the Pacific at the Battle of Midway, and the Allies invaded North Africa through Operation Torch.
This 1942-D half dollar bears an obverse design so popular it was brought back on the Silver American Eagle series introduced in 1986. Created by noted sculptor A.A. Weinman, Liberty is depicted strolling toward a new dawn. The reverse design features a proud eagle perched on a mountain crag. In the PCGS certified MS-65 condition available here, all the impressive details of Weinman’s stunning design can be enjoyed and appreciated.
Less than 1% of the original 10,973,800 mintage is estimated to exist today in all mint Uncirculated grades, and to date, PCGS has certified only 2,816 examples of the 1942-D in Gem Uncirculated MS-65 condition. Order this high-quality silver classic from World War II today!
