Walking Liberty was the creation of sculptor Adolph Alexander Weinman. Born in Durmersheim, Germany in 1870, he moved to the United States with his family at the age of 14. He began his trek toward a career in the arts at Cooper Union taking evening classes at the age of 15 and would later study at the Art Students League of New York alongside Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
On the obverse of the 1/10 oz GSM Walking Liberty Silver Round is the image of Liberty that Weinman created in 1916. His depiction of Liberty was indicative of the nation’s belief in a bright future for the people. Liberty is featured with the American flag draped over her shoulders as she strides toward the setting sun on the horizon. She carries the branches of laurel and oak which symbolize the nation’s civil and military glory.
The reverse side of the GSM Walking Liberty Silver Round features an image of the American bald eagle. This bird is depicted with its wings up and open, ready to take off from its mountain perch. The stance of the bird is said to reflect the nation’s fearless spirit and conscious recognition of its power.
All GSM Walking Liberty Silver Rounds come from the Golden State Mint. Opened in 1974 by Jim Pavlakos, today his son Andrew also helps guide the mint’s vision for creating low-mintage rounds, beautiful recreations of historic coinage, and other gold and copper rounds.
