The obverse exhibits a seated figure of Liberty, her right hand above the head of an eagle, her left forearm resting on top of a shield, and her left hand holding a sword. Around, 13 stars with the date below. The reverse has an eagle with spread wings, clutching three arrows in its right claw, its left leg raised up with the talon supporting a shield with an olive branch in front. A scroll across the shield is inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA with the denomination HALF DOL below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is one of several different designs the depict a full view of Liberty in a seated position, obviously intended to be an answer to Christian Gobrecht's design that had been in use since 1836.
