  • Title: 1945 Walking Liberty Half Dollar PCGS MS-64

Full Description

The Walking Liberty Half Dollars were issued from 1916 to 1947. Featuring designs by Adolph A. Weinman, the coin has been a collectors’ favorite since its first release. The coin was minted in 90% silver. Although the coin has a face value of 50 cents its numismatic value is significantly greater. The coin offered here was graded by PCGS as a Choice Uncirculated MS-64, having only moderate deficiencies and average to above average visual appeal.


The obverse Adolph A. Weinman design features Lady Liberty walking towards the rays of a rising sun. An American flag is draped across her shoulders. The figure stretches her right hand forward and carries in her left arm oak and laurel branches symbolizing strength and glory. Some elements of the coin’s design, such as the head of Lady Liberty and the branches she carries are reminiscent of Weinman’s sculpture for the ‘Union Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument’ in Baltimore. The face of Lady Liberty may have been inspired by Elsie Stevens, who was likely also the model for Weinman’s Mercury Dime. Also on the obverse are the word ‘Liberty,’ the motto ‘In God We Trust,’ and the year.


Weinman’s design for the reverse depicts an eagle perched on a mountain ledge with his wings outstretched. To the left of the mountain ledge is a mountain pine sapling, a symbol of America. The words ‘United States of America,’ ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ and the denomination of ‘Half Dollar’ are also engraved on the reverse.
