One of the most iconic images ever to grace an American coin is that of Walking Liberty. First designed in 1916, this image has been reproduced on countless coins and round since that time.
Adolph A. Weinman was a sculptor and artist who studied under Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the man who is considered one of the greatest coin designers in American history. Weinmans depiction of Walking Liberty was first created in 1916, and featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar between 1916 and 1947.
Today, Weinmans creation is found on the American Silver Eagle coin from the United States Mint, as well as the 1 oz Sunshine Walking Liberty Silver Round.
The Sunshine Mint is a private mint that produces custom and bullion coins in both gold and silver. The Mint also produces gold and silver blanks used by other mints in coining, including the United States Mint. Sunshine Mint is headquartered in Coeur dAlene, Idaho, with production facilities in that state, neighboring Nevada, and Shanghai.
