On December 7, 1941 America was thrust into World War II following the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. For the next four years, everyday life across the country was dramatically altered. Food, gas and clothing were rationed. A postage stamp would have cost you 3 cents, a minimum-wage job paid 30 cents an hour, and -- when you could find it and had enough ration coupons -- gasoline was 19 cents a gallon. Money was tight. But jingling in people’s pockets and purses across the country was a big silver coin with real buying power: the Walking Liberty Half-Dollar!
Now considered to be one of the top three most beautiful U.S. coins ever made, the Walking Liberty Half-Dollar was the largest circulating 90% silver coin struck between 1941 and 1945. The classic American design is so beautiful – and so beloved – that the U.S. Mint chose it as the design for U.S. Silver Eagle struck annually since 1986. But following the anxious years of rationing and shortages during the 1940s, many of those war-era half dollars were melted for their precious silver or simply wore out in circulation. That means finding any quantity of these 1941-1945 Walking Liberty Half-Dollars today – 73 years after they last rolled off the presses – can be a challenge.These are being offered for a limited time at "below wholesale pricing."
