Premier Coin Galleries - Walking Liberty Half Dollar

Walker Liberty Half Dollar


1916 was a period of major transition in the United States. Society was shifting from rural to urban – horse and buggy to “horseless carriage” – isolationist to world power.


Our coinage was also going through dramatic changes. The classic Indian Cent and Liberty Nickel as well as all four gold coins (Liberty Head – $2.50, $5.00, $10.00 & $20) had already been replaced. The curtain was about come down on the Barber Dime, Quarter and Half Dollar.


Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar


This design was the final work of John R. Sinnock, mint engraver, who also designed the long running Roosevelt Dime as well as the Sesquicentennial Half Dollar and $2.50 Gold Commemoratives. The obverse and reverse models of the Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar were completed only a few weeks before his death in May of 1947.
