Reverse: A image of a left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty as she walks toward the sun cresting a mounting on the horizon as she prepares to greet the new day. Lady Liberty is draped in the American flag and reaches out for the sun with her right hand and carries branches of oak and laurel in her left hand, symbolising both civil and military glory. The Eagle, the American national bird, is depicted on the left of Lady Liberty with his wings unfolded. The eagle's vigilant gaze and poise represents the courage and bravery of the United States.

A brief annotation
The Walking Liberty half dollar was a United States half dollar coin minted from 1916 to 1947 and designed by Adolph A Weinmann, a well-known sculptor and engraver. The Walking Liberty half dollar remained among the few existing currencies to contain any silver in their composition due to being minted before the production of silver coinage ceased in America. Desipite its discontinuation after 30 years, the design remained extremely popular and since 1986, with a few modifications, the reverse featuring Lady Liberty has been used on American Silver Eagles until this day.
