American half dollars have a long history of being excellent coins for collectors all over the world. The coins regularly celebrate classic American iconography, commemorating the most important moments, ideas, and people throughout the country’s impressive history. John F. Kennedy and Benjamin Franklin have both made appearances on American silver half dollars, and collectors have come to appreciate the incredible detail and historical significance of almost all of the half dollars created by the United States Mint.

Hero Bullion is proud to offer consumers this randomized package of two 90% Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollars. The Walking Liberty Design is known all over the world, and collectors for decades have prized the coins for their intricate etchings and vintage appeal. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar design was scrapped in 1947, when Benjamin Franklin’s likeness replaced Lady Liberty on its obverse. These coins were produced during two extremely controversial times in American history.
American Walking Liberty Half Dollars circulated during both World War One and World War Two. We should note that we cannot guarantee variety in this coin package, nor can we promise a specific year or condition. Older coins are likely to have more natural wear-and-tear. However, savvy collectors are likely to appreciate the unique cultural insight provided by coins with low condition. Some of the coins in this series were released over one-hundred years ago.
The marks, scuffs, and even chips in the design of these older products provides evidence of their age and circulation. Imagine holding a piece of American history that was used to purchase products in World War One, the Roaring Twenties, and World War Two. How much more incredible can a historical product be? The obverse of this coin is the classic walking image of Lady Liberty. She is depicted here in a flowing gown, carrying olive branches and gesturing forward in front of a rising sun. The year, as well as inscriptions of “Liberty” and “In God We Trust” are also included on this side of the coin.
The reverse shows the classic American Bald Eagle resting.
Historians and coin enthusiasts alike can appreciate the impressive history of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Struck with 90% pure silver and imbued with the recognizable design of Walking Lady Liberty, these coins are a window into America’s glorious past.
