The 1/2 oz 99.9% fine silver Walking Liberty Rounds is produced by the Highland Mint and are a beautiful example of the silver round. These exquisite pieces replicate what are considered by many to be the most beautifully designed coins in America’s history; the Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Many intriguing collections are based upon Lady Liberty’s various designs and costumes. Both sides of the original Walking Liberty Half-Dollar were designed by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. Elsie Stevens was his model for the Walking Liberty image as well as the Mercury dime. Weinman drew inspiration for his design of Lady Liberty from French coins designed by Oscar Roty, who depicted Lady Liberty as the sower of seeds of liberty with the sun rising at her feet.
