2001 New York Quarter D Mint
The Statue of Liberty is set in front of the state outline showing the Hudson River and Erie Canal. The 11 stars signify New York as the 11th state to enter the Union. The inscription “Gateway to Freedom” reflect the hopes and dreams of the many immigrants who passed through the New York harbor. For all these new Americans, their descendants and most of us, the Statue of Liberty is an inspirational symbol.
