American Innovation® $1 Coin – New York
The American Innovation $1 Coin representing New York pays homage to the Erie Canal. Completed in 1825, the 363-mile long, man-made waterway connected Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River in the east. Considered an engineering marvel of its day, the canal unlocked the western interior for trade and settlement, and played a critical role in the development of the state as well as the nation.
