  • Title: 1944 Walking Liberty Half Dollar NGC MS65

Full Description

As World War II rolled toward its end, the 1944 Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar was being minted again, as it had been since 1916 during the first Great War. The coin’s implicit call to peace and liberty corresponded with Americans’ drive for victory in war and a peaceful conclusion to the conflict. The coin has historical significance as well as interesting numismatic features. Offered here in MS65 condition as certified by NGC, this 1944 coin makes a wonderful addition to any high-grade coin collection.

Obverse

The front of the coin depicts Lady Liberty walking toward a rising sun. An American flag is draped across her shoulder, and she carries branches in her left hand. Weinman wanted the iconic figure to be as tall as possible, so he placed the word ‘Liberty’ to her right rather than above her. Also on the obverse is the motto ‘In God We Trust’ and the year of issue.

Reverse

Weinman created the reverse design as well. It features an eagle standing on a rocky crag with wings held high. Also on the back of the coin is the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ the denomination of ‘Half Dollar’ and the mintmark.
