About this Product
At the turn of last century President Theodore Roosevelt grew unhappy with American coinage. He reviewed the current designs and felt they were unattractive and repetitive. Roosevelt felt that our coinage should boldly represent the rising prominence of America, which had taken it's throne as the Greatest Nation in the World. With this idea in mind, Roosevelt led a revolution to redesign our coinage to be the greatest the world has ever seen. What resulted were the most beautiful and fascinating designs in American History!

The charge was led by this Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar. It was issued from 1916 until 1947, replaced by the Franklin Half Dollar. It is considered by most to be the most beautiful design ever placed on a US coin. So popular, that when the US Mint released the Silver Eagle Dollar in 1986 they re-issued the design. Not surprising, the Silver Eagle Dollar is the #1 silver dollar in the World today.

This coin comes encapsulated and presented in protective black velvet pouch.
