Walking Liberty Silver Rounds

History of Walking Liberty Silver Rounds

Walking Liberty silver rounds are a type of silver bullion produced in the United States. The design of the Walking Liberty silver round is based on the iconic Walking Liberty Half Dollar, which was minted from 1916 to 1947 by the U.S. Mint. On November 24, 1986, the U.S. Mint also released a .999 fine silver dollar version of the famous silver coin.

The Walking Liberty silver rounds have been produced by many private mints, including the Sunshine Mint, SilverTowne, Golden State Mint (GSM), and the Osborne Mint. Mints around the world create rounds of various precious metals, including silver, gold, platinum, palladium, and rhodium. There are also semi-precious metal rounds, or base metals, such as copper, steel, and other metals.

What is the Diameter of a Walking Liberty Silver Round?

The size of the Walking Liberty silver round is closer to the size of the silver dollar version of the Walking Liberty as opposed to the original silver half-dollar version. Most silver rounds fit in the palm of your hand much like U.S. coins. The diameter of the Walking Liberty silver round is 1.535” (39 mm); the diameter of a Walking Liberty silver half dollar is 1.2059” (30.63 mm); the diameter of Walking Liberty silver dollars is 1.598” (40.6 mm).

The Walking Liberty Silver Round is composed of .999 fine silver, with a weight of 1 Troy ounce, while the original Walking Liberty half dollar was .900 fine silver and weighed 12.5 grams - the remaining 10% of the half dollar was comprised of copper. The silver dollar version is also a one Troy ounce coin made with .999 fine silver. However, the Walking Liberty 1 silver dollar was not meant for circulation as the half dollar was. A coin that is .999 fine silver qualifies for depositing into a precious metals IRA (Individual Retirement Account).

It is common to find the Walking Liberty silver round used in silver jewelry, accessories, as an image design on a silver bar (or bars), or other products.

Design of Walking Liberty Silver Rounds

The obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) of the original Walking Liberty half dollar were designed by Adolph A. Weinman. For the silver dollar version, the U.S. Mint kept the Weinman obverse and made two different reverse side (tails) versions designed by Emily Damstra and John Mercanti.

The Walking Liberty silver round sold by Money Metals Exchange was designed by sculptor and coin designer Heidi Wastweet, who is also a part of the American Medallic Sculptor Association, and her name is recognized by the U.S. Mint.

The obverse of the Walking Liberty Silver Round features a depiction of Lady Liberty walking towards the sun, with the words‚ ”Liberty‚” “Privately Minted,” and, “Silver Round.” The original Walking Liberty had the motto ”In God We Trust,” “Liberty,” and the year the coin was minted inscribed.

The reverse of the Walking Liberty Silver Round features an image of an eagle with wings spread while sitting on a mountain crag that has a mountain pine sapling growing out of the mountain’s edge. The original Walking Liberty half dollar had the words, “United States of America‚” and‚ “E Pluribus Unum‚” inscribed on the reverse. The Walking Liberty Silver Round offered by Money Metals Exchange has the words, “Money Metals Exchange,” “One Troy Oz.,” and “.999 Pure Silver.”

Silver bullion coins have a face value, whereas a silver round does not. A precious metal round is typically invested in for the purpose of having a greater return on investment at a later selling date while acting as a hedge against inflation as it is an asset that helps build a store of value. No matter its condition or quantity, a silver round does not have any numismatic value as it is not legal coinage by the United States Mint. Since silver rounds are for the purpose of stacking silver, they tend to have a lower premium (dealer's fee) than silver coins. This makes silver rounds, such as the Walking Liberty, a great option for buyers investing in silver assets and building wealth.

The Walking Liberty silver round is an excellent silver purchase for investors and collectors alike.
