The Walking Liberty design was drafted in 1916 by Adolph A Weinman and quickly became a popular symbol representing the United States. This design, appearing on the obverse side of the coin, features Lady Liberty, originally seen as the Statue of Liberty, walking with the US flag flying behind her. She is carrying oak and laurel branches in her left hand and her right hand is outstretched. Behind her is the sun coming up over a hill. Above he is ‘LIBERTY’. Below her is the year of issue. To the right of her is the United States motto, ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’. The year of the actual coin you receive is contingent on the stock on hand.
On the reverse side of the coin is an eagle appearing to be landing on a branch with wings outstretched. Another eagle is already perched on the branch. Engraved above it is ‘UNITED STATES of AMERICA’. Below the image is ‘25 DOLLARS’ indicating the face value of the coin backed by the United States Government. Also at the bottom of the coin is ‘1/2 OZ FINE GOLD’. Above this in smaller text is ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM’ another more traditional motto of the United States which is Latin for ‘From many, one.’
