The symbolism of the Statue of Liberty is more than iconic, it is deeply entrenched within the fabric of United States history, as it greeted Newcomers to the United States on Ellis Island, who sought a better life. The portrait of Lady Liberty adorns the reverse side and is contained over a blank field. The image is encapsulated by thirteen stars, indicative of the thirteen original colonies of the United States.
The obverse depicts a torch that bears the light of enlightenment in the form of American Ideals, such as Liberty, freedom, and democracy. The flame is illustrated as burning bright and strong. Liberty serves as the legend, with the denomination, and purity also included.
The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States in the 1880s as a gift from the people of France, and designed by a French artist of the time. Constructed of copper on the outer layer, Liberty was actually constructed in totality in France, disassembled, and shipped to the United States where it was then put back together in New York Harbor.
