Introducing the 2016 Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coin! This coin’s release is an event that’s been 100 years in the making.
Beautifully struck in .9999 fine, 24–karat gold, this 2016 centennial anniversary release celebrates Adolph A. Weinman’s original “Walking Liberty” half dollar design. Each gold coin contains one–half troy ounce of 24–karat gold, symbolic of the coin’s denomination, and has a business strike finish.
The obverse (heads) features a full–length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2016.”
The reverse (tails) depicts an American eagle rising from a mountaintop perch. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “AU,” “24K,” “1/2 OZ.,” and “HALF DOLLAR.”
Each coin is encapsulated and hand–packaged in a custom–designed, black matte hardwood presentation case and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
In 2016, the U.S. Mint has marked the centennial anniversary of three numismatic icons with the release of the Mercury Dime, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coins.
