Full Description

1947 was the final year of minting for the 1947 Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The coin had been in production since 1916, when it replaced the less attractive Barber coins. America was at peace, and new coins would soon take the place of this iconic silver coin. However, collectors have not forgotten its beauty and historical relevance. While the coin does have intrinsic value based on its 0.3176 troy ounce of .900 silver, the numismatic value is much greater. Certified as Mint State-65 by NGC, this 1947-D Walking Liberty coin makes a great addition to a 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.
