To look at the image of Lady Liberty walking with her stretched right arm towards the rising sun with her draped flag and gown billowing gently to the wind is indeed a pleasant sight. The design captivated one and all upon its release. The extremely detailed design was something different from the stoic Barber Half Dollar design. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar is considered to be among the most beautiful coins of USA, and is popular in the numismatic world even till today.
Thanks to the misconception of Mint Director, Robert W. Woolley, the world got the most beautiful coin of all time, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, popularly known as the Walkers. Woolley felt that it was required by law to replace a coin design that had been minted for at least 25 years. Hence he took the initiative of replacing the Barber coinage with new designs. The Barber dimes, quarters, and half dollars all had the same design and all of these were first struck in 1892.
Woolley asked the Commission of Fine Arts to conduct a competition to come up with new and different designs for each denomination, i.e., the dime, quarter, and half dollars. The Commission had invited three outside mint sculptors; Hermon A. MacNeil, Albin Polasek and Adolph A. Weinman, all three from New York, to create designs for the three different denominations with the freedom of providing multiple sketches. Even the mint’s chief engraver, Charles E. Barber was given a chance to create new designs for the different denominations. The Commission did not like any of the Barber’s designs and rejected them.
After Woolley met with the Secretary of Treasury, William G. McAdoo, five of Adolph A. Weinman’s designs were selected. Two for the dime, two for the half dollar, and one for the reverse of the quarter while MacNeil only got the opportunity to design the obverse of the quarter and none of Polasek’s designs were selected. However, later on since it was felt that one artist must not be given the responsibility of designing three coins, the reverse for the quarter also was given to MacNeil, while Weinman got to design the dime and half dollar.
This is how the half dollar got its most beautiful design of all time, the Walking Liberty on it. The coin is made of 90% silver and 10% copper and is popular with collectors as well as investors for its artistic appeal as well as high intrinsic value.
