The design of the magnificent Liberty Walking half dollar was chosen in a competition among noted sculptors held by the Commission of Fine Arts in 1916. Adolph A. Weinman`s sketch models were selected for the dime, soon to be known as the "Mercury" dime, as well as for the Liberty Walking half dollar. Both coins were struck in 90% fine silver, and both have taken their rightful place among the most attractive and popular U.S. coins ever circulated!
