In 2016, the United States Mint decided to honor the centennial of three classic American coinage designs. The Walking Liberty half dollar was the third and final coin design to be replicated.

As is the case with the Mercury Dime and Standing Liberty quarter issues, this coin is a bit smaller than the original, at only 27mm versus the normal 30.66mm of a half dollar.

Description

Introducing the 2016 Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coin! This gold coin is an event that’s been 100 years in the making.

Beautifully struck in .9999 fine, 24-karat gold, this gold 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.”
