Walking Liberty Half Dollar Design.The front of these half dollars show Liberty in stride before the sun and its rays. With one arm extended, she carries a bundle of oak and laurel branches with her other arm.
Weinman######xE2;s intention for the oak and laurel branches was to symbolize the prestige of the United States military as well as our society. Behind Liberty, the Stars and Stripes can be seen floating in the breeze. This side is inscribed with the words LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and the year the coin was struck. On the reverse, a bald eagle is shown in the powerful and proud rising position. Next to the eagle is a small tree that has begun to grow from a crack in the rocks.
Weinman######xE2;s intention for the small tree was to symbolize the United States and its ability to overcome adversity. The back side reads UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and HALF DOLLAR. We cannot make any price adjustments after the sale is complete.
