It takes a special lady to bust up a boy’s club. She must be a timeless icon who represents the best of America. She must symbolize freedom and independence. And she’s got to inspire a passion for patriotism. That’s why in the world of United States currency, one woman stands above every man—Lady Liberty. And no other coin captures her power and grace like the Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
First minted in 1916, the coin was praised as a miniature masterpiece in 90% silver. Once the Walking Liberty ended production in 1947, it became one of the most sought-after collectible silver coins in America. Today you get the chance to wear this important piece of American history on your wrist with the Walking Liberty Watch. We’ve transformed the face of this remarkable coin into the dial of a limited-edition timepiece. In its 1916 annual report, the United States Mint described the scene on the coin as Liberty with “the folds of the Stars and Stripes flying to the breeze as a background, progressing in full stride toward the dawn of a new day, carrying branches of laurel and oak, symbolical of civil and military glory. The hand of the figure is outstretched in bestowal of the spirit of liberty.”
Each watch features the obverse of a genuine Walking Liberty Half Dollar (dates and conditions will vary), set into a gold-finished, coin-edged, stainless steel case. Driven by a quartz movement, three hands keep precise time beneath a disc of sturdy Cotswold™ Crystal. The watch secures with a genuine black leather band and is water resistant to 3 ATM. Fits wrists 7"–8 ½".
