  • Title: 1945 Walking Liberty Half Dollar PCGS MS-65

Full Description

The Walking Liberty Half Dollar is one of the most beautiful and admired coins produced by the U.S. Mint. The coin was minted from 1916 to 1947. The 1945 coin offered here was graded by PCGS as an MS-65 Gem Uncirculated condition, having only minor imperfections and a pleasing appearance. The coins is a superb numismatic choice for collectors of U.S. coins.

Obverse

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.

Reverse

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.
