1916 to 1947 Walking Liberty Half Dollars

The Walking Liberty Half Dollars was designed by Adolph A. Weinman. Production began in 1916 and was replaced by the Franklin Half Dollar in 1948.

For the obverse design, Weinman chose a full-length figure of Liberty striding toward the dawn of a new day, clad in the Stars and Stripes and carrying branches of laurel and oak symbolizing civil and military glory. The reverse depicts a majestic eagle perched on a mountain crag, wings unfolded in a pose suggesting power, with a sapling of mountain pine—symbolic of America—springing from a rift in the rock.

Over 485 million Walking Liberty halves were made between 1916 and 1947, but they were issued only intermittently during the 1920s and early 1930s, none being minted in 1922, 1924-26 and 1930-32.

These were coins had substantial buying power, enough to buy a loaf of bread, a quart of milk and a dozen eggs in the early 1930s, so it didn’t take huge quantities to fill Americans’ needs, especially after the Wall Street crash plunged the nation into the Great depression.
