Description & Analysis

The 1923-S Walking Liberty half dollar was the only half dollar struck between 1922 and 1926. Because of this, the relatively high mintage of nearly 2.2 million was well circulated and not saved in large quantities. Because of this, it is a rare coin not only in gem, but in lower uncirculated grades as well.
