1916 - 1947 US circulated legal tender Walking Liberty half-dollar ninety percent silver coin bags
are traded based on silver weight.
All bags contain $1,000 face value of the coins and boast a total silver content of 715 ounces. The coins are ninety percent silver and ten percent copper.
In 1965, by order of Congress, the US Mint removed all silver from dimes and quarters. Silver content for half-dollars was reduced to 40% up until 1972, when all silver was removed from
the half-dollar as well.
The Walking Liberty Half Dollar, designed by Adolph A. Weinman, is considered one of the best designed US silver coins. The obverse depicts a walking Lady Liberty holding an olive branch
above a rising sun with “LIBERTY” in an arc at the top of the coin, and also shows the mint date.
The reverse shows a perched bald eagle, our national symbol.
