The coin’s obverse showcases the well-known Walking Liberty design, also used on the Silver Half Dollar in 1916. The design, developed by Adolph A. Weinman, features Lady Liberty marching forth towards the rising sun, the US flag draped gently around her. The reverse of the coin, designed by engraver John Mercanti, displays a Heraldic bald American eagle sitting behind a large striped shield. Thirteen stars representing the 13 original colonies hover above the eagle’s head. It also grasps arrows and olive branches in its talons, and a banner reading “E PLURIBUS UNUM” in its beak.
