Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886. The Statue of Liberty is a figure of a robed woman representing Libertas, a Roman goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with “JULY IV MDCCLXXVI” (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.
The reverse of the coin presents the wonderful image of the Statue of Liberty surrounded by the colours of the rainbow. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: “BE FREE” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin features the Statue of Liberty with beautiful flying birds and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” – the issue country, “2000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value and “2018” – the year of issue.
