We are pleased to offer the 1 oz 99.9% fine silver Walking Liberty Rounds produced by the Highland Mint. These exquisite pieces replicate what are considered by many to be the most beautifully designed coins in America’s history; the Walking Liberty.
Many intriguing collections are based upon Lady Liberty’s various designs and costumes. Both sides of the original Walking Liberty were designed by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. Elsie Stevens was his model for the Walking Liberty image as well as the Mercury dime. Weinman drew inspiration for his design of Lady Liberty from French coins designed by Oscar Roty, who depicted Lady Liberty as the sower of seeds of liberty with the sun rising at her feet.
For the reverse side of the piece, Weinman adapted a design that he created for a medal for the American Institute of Architects. A pine sapling replaced a branch of laurel. The majestic eagle depicted in Weinman’s medal is highly praised for its powerful and stately presence and was adopted to be the symbol of the “Coat of Arms” banner that is still used today in political functions.
