THE LAST THREE WALKING LIBERTY SILVER HALF DOLLARS (1945-1947)

Silver Half Dollars were once part of American coinage – but silver coins disappeared generations ago, and circulating Half Dollars are now a long-forgotten memory. This unique collection features one Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar from each of the last three years of issue, 1945-1947.

The Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar was first minted in 1916. It is considered one of America’s most beautiful coins. The obverse depicts Lady Liberty wrapped in a U.S. flag and walking towards the rising sun. The reverse shows a magnificent eagle with its wings stretched.

This was America Half Dollar from World War I through the “Roaring Twenties,” the Great Depression, and World War II. Each coin was struck in the beauty of .900 fine silver and is a genuine piece of American history.

The last Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar was made in 1947, shortly after the end of World War II. It was replaced with the Franklin Silver Half Dollar in 1948.

The three coins in this collection are rarely seen. In fact, the Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar disappeared from circulation over 55 years ago. What’s more, most coins were worn out or damaged in circulation, leaving just a fraction in collectible quality like those in this collection.

Each coin contains over 1/3 ounce of silver bullion – and millions of coins were melted for the precious silver in 1979-80 when silver reached a record $50.35 an ounce … leaving even fewer coins for today’s collectors.

The last three Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollars date from a truly historic era. Here are the highlights of each year:
1945: Marines land on Iwo Jima … President Franklin D. Roosevelt dies … Nazi Germany surrenders … Japan surrenders to bring World War II to an end … the United Nations is founded.
1946: Winston Churchill coins the phrase “iron curtain” … the post-war “baby boom” starts … the Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders starts … the bikini swimsuit is introduced.
1947: Marshall Plan for European reconstruction starts … Jackie Robinson becomes baseball’s first black player … the U.S. Air Force is established … the term “UFO” is created after a mysterious sighting in Roswell, New Mexico.

The set of the last three Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollars is displayed in a custom holder and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
