.50 1941-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar NGC/PCGS MS64

Struck in San Francisco

The Walking Liberty Half Dollar ran from 1916 to 1947 and the designs by Adolph A. Weinman are one of the most beautiful motifs ever employed on a circulating coin. The coin`s obverse features Lady Liberty adorned in the American flag while striding towards the sun. She stretches her right arm towards the sky and in her left arm she carries a bundle of oak and laurel branches symbolizing military and civilian honors. The image of a mighty eagle with gorgeously detailed feathers perched on a rocky cliff dominates the coin`s reverse design. The eagle`s forward talon grasps a pine branch, a symbol of strength, growing from the rocky cliff. Displayed below the pine branch is the mintmark and the designer`s AW initials appear under the tips of the eagle`s tail feathers. Minted in San Francisco, this 1941 example has been graded MS64.
