Walking Liberty Half Dollar graded and encapsulated by PCGS MS63. In the early parts of the 20th century, Theodore Roosevelt began an initiative to redesign the nation’s coinage from a cent to a double eagle. This period is known as the “Renaissance Era of U.S. Coinage.”  The concept was to use contemporary artists and create examples that raised the artistic quality across the board. Many of the era's coin designers were given the privilege by the Fine Arts Commission and through various contests. Sculptor Adolph Weinman won two such contests gaining the rights to redesign both the half-dollar and the dime. His half-dollar Walking Liberty motif has been praised as one of the nation’s finest numismatic works and the obverse has continued in production being reissued on the modern silver bullion coinage. 

Certified, graded, and encapsulated by PCGS.

Obverse: Liberty Walking Left Holding an Olive Branch and Wearing a Draped Flag Gown. Sun Setting on the West Horizon.
