Walking Liberty Half Dollar

Walking Liberty Half Dollar (1916-1947)

The Walking Liberty design is heralded all over the world as one of the most beautiful and instantly iconic designs to ever grace a product of the United States Mint. This is not hyperbole. The evocative image of Lady Liberty gliding across the landscape against a rising sun calls to the heart of every American.

In addition to the coin’s spectacular artwork, the duration of this coin’s run, from 1916 through 1947, means this coin is forever associated in the American psyche with World War I and World War II, and our nation’s triumph over the evil of fascism. Contemporary collectors are constantly striving to acquire these coins, though fewer and fewer are available on the market with each passing year.

The Value of a Walking Liberty Half Dollar

Determining the ballpark price of a given Walking Liberty Half Dollar is relatively simple when you consider the key factors of valuation. Of foremost importance to collectors is the coin’s condition. As you might expect, coins that have been carefully preserved command the highest premiums. Walking Liberty Half Dollars range in value from around $10 to many thousands of dollars.

While condition plays a role in determining the price of a Walking Liberty, the year of mintage and the type of coin also help determine price. It is important to remember there were up to three different types of Walking Liberties produced every year, so coins that share the same date may have disparate values based on their type.

The Most Desirable Walking Liberty Half Dollars

Simply put, the most desirable Walking Liberty Half Dollars are the older ones. Coins from the 1910s and 1920s are more alluring to collectors simply because they are older and naturally a bit more difficult to locate and obtain. As always, well-preserved specimens are widely sought.

Collectors especially enjoy showing off a 90-year-old coin that looks as pristine and lustrous as one that just came out of a mint box. Beyond those special early coins, condition is the key factor. These coins were in general circulation and carefully preserved examples are less abundant than many collectors would hope.

 

Future Values of Walking Liberty Half Dollars

The Walking Liberty Half Dollar has growth potential over the long term, but there is no way to accurately assess what the value of one of these coins might be at a given point in the future. What we can know, however, is these coins will assuredly grow scarcer as years pass. Scarcity will drive the value of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar as it does all coins. If you are serious about adding one of these beautiful and meaningful coins to your collection, now is the moment.
