A new series of commemorative coins are being released by the U.S. Mint to mark the 100th
anniversary of the three iconic coins in the U.S. Coinage; the Mercury
Dime, the Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Walking Liberty Half Dollar is the third and final release in this
series. This coin will have the same design as that of its original
silver counterpart. The design was extremely popular upon its release in
1916. The designer of the coin is Adolph A. Weinman who won the
opportunity to design two coins, the Mercury Dime and Walking Liberty
Half Dollar, from a competition held by the Commission of Fine Arts.
Walking Liberty was an instant hit with the public, and it raised a
deep patriotic feeling in a nation that was getting ready for a war. The
design had a lot of meaning and was an inspiration to many. The obverse
features a full-length image of a beautiful Lady Liberty draped in
stars and stripes and striding forward confidently towards a new dawn
while her gown and the flag gently billowing in the air. Her right hand
is outstretched in a sense of leading, and her left hand is holding a
bundle of olive and oak branches which signify peace and strength. She
is wearing the Phrygian cap on her head.
reverse features the image of a majestic bald eagle perched on the
cliff of a mountain, its wings unfolded showing fearless spirit and
completely conscious of its power. A sapling of mountain pine is
springing from the rift of the mountain, which symbolizes America...

panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized
by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears,
and across its round body. The name "giant panda" is sometimes used to
distinguish it from the unrelated red panda. Though it belongs to the
order Carnivora, the giant panda's diet is over 99% bamboo. Giant pandas
will occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the
form of birds, rodents, or carrion.The giant panda lives in a
few mountain ranges in central China, mainly in Sichuan, but also in
neighboring Shaanxi and Gansu. As a result of farming, deforestation,
and other development, the giant panda has been driven out of the
lowland areas where it once lived.While the dragon has often
served as China's national symbol, internationally the giant panda
appears at least as commonly. As such, it is becoming widely used within
China in international contexts.When people think of China,
they often think of the panda. The Chinese regard them as a symbol for
friendship and peace. The panda has an important place in Chinese
culture and history. In the Xizhou Dynasty, the panda was described as
an invincible animal, as strong as a tiger. As a tribute to kings and
emperors, a panda's pelt was often given during that time.During
the Ming dynasty, the panda was often thought to have medical powers.
The pelt supposedly could repel plague and prevent tumors.
