The History of the Liberty Walking Half Dollar (1916-1947):

The first Liberty Walking Half Dollar was issued in 1916. The obverse depicted a full frontal pose of Lady Liberty striding Eastward towards a rising sun. Her body is draped in the American Flag. In her left arm, she carries a bundle of oak and laurel branches symbolic of military and civilian honors, respectively. The reverse design was that of an eagle with a sapling of mountain pine, symbolic of America, clutched in his right talon.

The mint mark on the first minting of the Liberty Walking Half Dollar, 1916 through the first part of 1917, is located on the obverse directly under "in God We Trust". In 1917, midway through the second year of minting, the mint mark location was moved to the reverse, near the rim, below the lowest bunch of needles on the pine bough.

The Liberty Walking Half Dollar was designed by Adolph Alexander Weinman. His initials 'AAW' appear on the reverse, near the rim, under the tip of the wing feathers.

The Liberty Walking Half Dollar was composed of 90% Silver and 10% Copper. Since pure silver is very soft, copper was added to all circulating silver coins to harden them and prevent excessive wear. These 90% Silver Half Dollars had a weight of 12.50 grams, a diameter of 30.6 mm, a reeded edge. The edges of most silver coins were reeded to make evident any attempt to shave silver off the coin.

The Liberty Walking Half Dollar was struck in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
