Adolph A. Weinman was a sculptor and artist who studied under Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the man who is considered one of the greatest coin designers in American history. Weinmans depiction of Walking Liberty was first created in 1916, and featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar between 1916 and 1947.
Today, Weinmans creation is found on the American Silver Eagle coin from the United States Mint, as well as the 1 oz Sunshine Walking Liberty Silver Round. On the obverse side of the coin is the depiction of Lady Liberty as she strides toward the setting sun. Her right hand is outstretched as she walks, and the American flag is draped around her shoulders. The imagery is representative of Americas relentless march toward a brighter future.
On the obverse side of the coin is the depiction of a bald eagle. In the image, a bald eagle is featured atop an olive branch with its wings prepared to take flight. Engravings on this silver round differ from those found on the original Walking Liberty Half Dollar. As a silver round, these coins have no face value, and, as such, have no year of minting or dollar value engraved.
The Sunshine Mint is a private mint that produces custom and bullion coins in both gold and silver. The Mint also produces gold and silver blanks used by other mints in coining, including the United States Mint. Sunshine Mint is headquartered in Coeur dAlene, Idaho, with production facilities in that state, neighboring Nevada, and Shanghai.
