In 1982, as the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty approached, this beloved icon of freedom stood worn and weary. An ambitious grassroots program was launched to fund repairs so that future generations could see for themselves the great "Gateway to America." As part of this effort, the U.S. Mint issued these landmark 1986 commemoratives.
The obverse of this copper-nickel clad half dollar features a ship of immigrants arriving in New York harbor, greeted by the Statue of Liberty. The reverse depicts an immigrant family on the threshold of America. This gleaming Proof with frosted images and mirrorlike surfaces is an inspiring piece of history honoring one of our nation's most cherished icons, buy it today!
