WALKING LIBERTY HALF DOLLAR TRIBUTE – 2 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
In 1916 the design of Adolph A. Weinman was selected for the new half dollar motif to replace the Barber design which had been in use since 1892. Weinman, a sculptor, also produced the Liberty Head or “Mercury” dime introduced the same year.
- Contains 2 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
- Obverse: Miss Liberty walking toward the sun, her right arm outstretched, her left arm carrying a bundle of branches, and with a starry cape behind. LIBERTY is above, while IN GOD WE TRUST is to the lower right, and the date is below.
- Reverse: An eagle perched on a rocky crag, from which grows a pine branch, a symbol of strength. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above, E PLURIBUS UNUM is to the left, and TWO TROY OUNCES is below, with the hallmark on the lower right circumference.

I saw this High-Relief Walking Liberty on SalivateMetal’s Youtube channel and had to get one (Also the St. Gaudens Double Eagle!!!). Now that I have it in-hand, it is AMAZING – BEAUTIFUL – FLAWLESS! I thought they’d look cool, based on the pictures here, but now that I see them and am holding one in my own hand — it’s stunningly beautiful. The font is just right, the eagle (rev) and liberty (obv) are exactly right. Honestly, it could not be any better! And I really like the frosted finish of the coin. I’m not sure if the planchet or the dies give it that finish, but it is about as perfect as it could be. Honestly, it is BETTER than the US Mint could produce. I’m addicted! I also bought the Mercury dime in 50mm 2 oz-t and the high-relief 39mm 2 oz-t versions, and each of them is seriously stunning! These are my new favorite rounds – and it’s not even close!
