Walking Liberty
The Walking Liberty half dollar was a silver 50-cent piece or half dollar coin issued by the United States Mint from 1916 to 1947; it was designed by Adolph A. Weinman.

In 1915, the new Mint Director, Robert W. Woolley, came to believe that he was not only allowed but required by law to replace coin designs that had been in use for 25 years. He therefore began the process of replacing the Barber coinage: dimes, quarters and half dollars, all bearing similar designs by long-time Mint Engraver Charles E. Barber, and first struck in 1892. Woolley had the Commission of Fine Arts conduct a competition, as a result of which Weinman was selected to design the dime and half dollar.

Weinman's design of Liberty striding towards the Sun for the half dollar proved difficult to perfect, and Treasury Secretary William G. McAdoo, whose department included the Mint, considered having Barber create his own design. Mint officials were successful in getting Weinman's design into production, although it never struck very well, which may have been a factor in its replacement by the Franklin half dollar beginning in 1948. Nevertheless, art historian Cornelius Vermeule considered the piece to be among the most beautiful US coins. Since 1986, a modification of Weinman's obverse design has been used for the American Silver Eagle.

 
Design

The coin's reverse depicts a beautiful Walking Liberty with the flag of the USA in background, in full colors. On the right side, the inscription: "In God we trust". On the bottom, the issue year: “2016”. On the obverse of the coin, the USA flag with the eagle plated in Gold and the inscriptions: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (on the banner that the eagle holds in its beak), as well as the mintmark if applicable.
