One of the most powerful and iconic designs in all of American numismatics is Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty. The design features Liberty striding proudly forward, her body draped in an American flag, as a new day dawns. First struck as the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, the design was so beloved that it was chosen for the obverse of the modern-day American Silver Eagle Dollar, which has been struck every year since 1986.
