This classic design by Adolph A. Weinman features Lady Liberty with an American flag draped around her shoulders. She carries branches of laurel and oak in one arm, while the other arm reaches toward a sunrise. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2016.”
The reverse focuses on an American Bald Eagle perched atop a rock, with outstretched wings as it prepares to soar into the sky. You’ll find the purity, weight, and denomination on this side, along with inscriptions of “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The 2016-W oz Gold Walking Liberty Half Dollar was issued by the US Mint to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Weinman’s treasured design, which first appeared on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The original coin was produced during the “Renaissance of American Coinage,” which produced many coins that remain popular today. The “W” in the coin’s title refers to it being struck at the West Point branch of the US Mint.
Every PCGS SP70 First Strike “Walker” comes encapsulated to protect its perfect grade, with a custom label that features the image and signature of Weinman. A First Strike coin is one that was released from the mint within the first 30 days of issue.
Each of these gold coins comes sealed in a plastic holder, which is protected by packing materials for safe shipping.

" Really nice looking gold coin. I'll be honest, my old eyes can't discern anything special about the coin to set it apart from any other proof coin, but if PCGS says it's SP70 then who am I to argue? The coin I received differs from the photo; if you're looking at Lady Liberty and then rotate the coin 180 degrees, the eagle is upside down. You have to flip it vertically to get the same orientation. Regardless, it's a captivating coin to behold, and of course you can't go wrong with 24K gold!"
