The Walking Liberty Dollar, better known as a Silver Eagle is a US bullion coin. On the obverse (heads) it features a woman personifying liberty, in her hand she has an olive branch and her other hand is outstretched to the sun. Flowing in front of her is an American flag. This is the same obverse (heads) design that was used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. On the reverse (tails) it features an eagle with its wings spread, olive branches grasped in one foot and arrows in another with stars above it. It says above the stars "United States of America" and below it "1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR". They are worth generally the price of silver in the coin (with usually a dollar or two added because of the fact it is a coin) which is always higher than the one dollar face value.

There are Walking Liberty half dollars and silver bullion coins, but the Walking Liberty design was never used on a quarter.If you're referring to a Standing Liberty quarter, its value depends very much on its condition, mint mark, and date. Please enter the question "What is the value of a US quarter?" for a specific answer. "19xx" of course is the date on your coin, like 1918 or 1930.

The U.S. never minted a coin like that. Walking Liberty halves were made for circulation 1916-1947 The design was brought back for "one dollar" bullion pieces in the 1990s. You may have a fantasy piece or something similar, or you could have a privately-minted bullion coin. Without seeing it, impossible to say.

That date makes it a Peace dollar. The obverse features a young Lady Liberty, wearing a pointed crown, similar to that found on the Statue of Liberty. The reverse shows a bald eagle perched on an olive branch.

It's supposed to be like that.

All Peace dollars have the same design. The difference between the 1921 Peace Dollar and the 1921 Morgan dollar is that Liberty looks completely different. In the more common 1921 Morgan dollar, Liberty wears a crown with the word "LIBERTY" on it, on the reverse of the Morgan dollar, there is an eagle with olive branches and arrows in its talons along with a wreath under it. On the Peace Dollar, Liberty looks like she has rays coming out of her head and on the reverse there is an Eagle sitting on a rock inscribed "PEACE", there is no wreath on the reverse.

I would like to find the value of a 1896-0 liberty dollar value

8-24-11>> The coin is NOT an Liberty silver dollar, it's a PEACE dollar (1921-1935) and all them have TRVST spelled like this. It's just part of the design.

On your browser type in " Susan B. Anthony Dollar " and click on images, this is the easy thing to do.

It looks like the back of the coin, with a real big eagle.

there is a lot of factor take place like what year it is and if its uncirculated

Face value only - $1.To clear things up, the woman on the front of the coin is Susan B. Anthony, not Miss Liberty, so the coin is called an Anthony dollar not a Liberty dollar. Also coins are said to be struck or minted; "printing" refers to paper and ink, like $1 bills.

I couldn't find an image of a 1943 coin but the same design was used in all years of issue with only minor variations. There's a picture of a 1947 coin in the link posted to the left.

because shes going foward, mooving with courage and freedom! hail the u.s.a

The coin is one of the Seated Liberty dollars that were made from 1840 to 1873.

Please check again and post a new question. Dimes minted from mid-1916 to 1945 are called Mercury dimes. They carry a portrait of Miss Liberty wearing a winged Liberty cap which looks like the helmet worn by the Greek god Mercury. The Walking Liberty design was used on half dollars minted from 1916 to 1947

1914 would have made it a Liberty head (or Barber) style half dollar. Pictures can be found online.

All U.S. coins dated 1943 have the word LIBERTY on them, but no U.S. coin is called a "LIBERTY" coin. For 1943 the denominations are: Lincoln cents, Jefferson nickels, Mercury dimes, Washington quarters and Walking Liberty half dollars.

Your 1924 Liberty silver dollar is actually a 1924 PEACE dollar and assuming it's circulated retail value is $16.00-$20.00 depending on condition. As to the "misprint" the spelling of TRUST with a V and not a U is normal all Peace dollars are like this. And remember, coins are minted, not printed. Dollar bills are printed.

liberty looks like a mini statue of liberty but liberty is more in cartoon.

There is no such coin. Morgan dollars* were not issued until 1878. If you have a Liberty Seated dollar with that date, its value depends on its condition and mint mark: No mint mark - $400 if very worn, $1000 if moderately worn, $1600 if like new "O" mint mark - $250, $750, $1200 If you have a Morgan dollar with the date 1850 it is a counterfeit. (*) The coin is called a Morgan dollar after its designer. It carries the image of Miss Liberty, not the head of Mr. Morgan.

One way to purchase one of these silver coins would be to attend a local coin auction. One could get information in local newspaper or ask at local auction houses. Another way would be online auction houses like ebay.

It depends on the coin to determine who the model was. For example, the Peace Dollar had Liberty modeled after the designer's wife Teresa de Francisci. But the Morgan dollar was modeled after Anna Willess Williams. "Liberty" never meant a real person, but rather a personification of the ideal of Liberty, a bit like the gods and goddesses of ancient Roman and Greek coinage. The US didn't want to be like the European countries and put people on their coinage, instead they wanted to put ideals on them. Rather than be lead by a king or a long-dead hero, they wanted to be lead by the ideal of Liberty.

A Morgan silver dollar was minted in the United States between 1878 and 1921. It has a Lady Liberty head on the front and an Eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows on the back.

Miss Liberty (1794), she is not a real person, but the designer Robert Scot's stylized symbolic interpretation of what she looks like.
