What’s the most powerful way to honor what is considered by many to be the most beautiful American coin ever produced?
The Walking Liberty first appeared on the Walking Liberty Halves (1916-1947) and again on the American Silver Eagle (1986-2013) because it showcased the grandiose Walking Liberty that was beloved by Americans due to its portrayal of patriotism and freedom. But survival has taken the place of patriotism and independence during the age of zombies.
While the Walking Liberty was first designed just before World War I, the 2017 Zombucks™ Walker coin was produced by the Provident Mint as a zombified tribute to the elegant Lady Liberty. It is composed of 1 AVDP oz of .999 copper and is known as the “Currency of the Apocalypse” with a denomination of Z2.
Adolf Weinman’s design of the Walking Liberty was selected by the U.S. Mint during an open competition in 1916 to add excitement to the coins that had become “boring” to those in control. With a striding Lady Liberty and stars and stripes whipping in the wind alongside her, the depiction grabbed the essence and spirit of liberty that was so important during that era. She walked toward a brighter day with the sun on the horizon carrying laurel and oak branches.
The zombified Lady Liberty on the Zombucks™ Walker shuffles toward humans, wearing torn clothes and carrying disheveled stars and stripes. Zombie Liberty carries an ax while a mushroom cloud appears from an explosion in the background of this obverse. The inscriptions read “WALKER,” “2017” and “Z2.”
A biohazard symbol is the focus of the reverse as warning of the extreme hazards during an apocalypse. It is inscribed with “ZOMBUCKS,” CURRENCY OF THE APOCALYPSE,” “1 oz .999 FINE SILVER” and a Provident Metals compass logo.
Zombucks™ has been trademarked as the official currency of the apocalypse. Merchants, though few during such an event, will only accept these rounds, and if humans can somehow survive, they are certain to be highly sought-after collectors items.
Own the currency of the apocalypse with the Zombucks™ Walker copper coin from Provident Metals. If you’re able to access this page, don’t wait another second, use our secure online ordering system... but take out that zombie creeping up behind you first!

OverallTheses copper rounds are great. Love the quality and the theme. Looking forward to collecting the entire zombucks series.
- Wonderful copper rounds!Dudeon 11/6/13
OverallI enjoyed the theme of this copper round and had to get a few. I received my order in a timely manner and was pleased with the overall product. Nice shiny copper rounds when I inspected and nice detail with the zombie theme. This was a popular type of coin design to zombify and by 2017 I am sure people would want to hand over their fiat dollars for more than face value to get some of these Zombucks!

- Super Great Copper Walker RoundsRoberton 10/3/13
OverallProvident sent these copper walker rounds so fast. I felt like a jet plane landed them in my driveway. I am so please with these copper walker rounds. They look like they were just hot off the press. They look just like the U.S. mint strikes . I will need to get some more before the deadline. If you haven't got them yet you should. You will be impressed. Will place another order in a few days. THANKS AGAIN

OverallThese are really great coins. They are on to something here. Copper is an underrated metal. Really beautiful, if you keep it from tarnishing. If Provident keeps up with these low shipping deals, I'll be coming back for the next edition of these, as well as other metals.

Overallmy soul yearns for your beauty to return,in all its former glory. my daughter loves this medallion.thanks provident.
- Beautiful, and fun design!Danielon 8/26/13
OverallI bought both the silver and copper. Silver is sitting in my safe, but these coppers are great fun to carry around in your pocket, to show off. I should receive something for all the free advertising I've given Provident Metals. LOL!
I've always loved the Walking Liberty design, and this rendition is perfect! Can't wait to see the next designs, though it will be hard to top this one.

- Awesome looking coinsNicholason 8/16/13
OverallAwesome looking coins; excellent shipping never any problems with this company.
- Bought 20, most look like seconds qualityNirBhaoon 8/15/13
OverallI bought 20, most look like seconds quality with imperfections, and poor polishing, like maybe the die was a bit messed up? Hard to make out the details on the copper round, easier with the silver round. Still cool but would not pay more than the $1 they were on sale for.
- A Copper coin for the Apocalypse lover in you.Scott on 8/12/13
OverallThis Copper coin has some nice heft to it. The play off the Walking Silver dollar is ingenious. I plan to hand these out to friends who are also Zombie and Apocalypse lovers.
