Nicknames

What is the official name of the Statue of Liberty?

The statue's official name is "Liberty Enlightening the World." She was modeled after the Roman goddess of liberty, hence the "liberty" part, and her torch represents the act of enlightening the world.

The statue was a joint project between the U.S. and the French—America handled the pedestal, and France designed the statue. It was supposed to be a gift for the centennial anniversary of America's independence in 1876, but it wasn't dedicated until October 28, 1886, due to numerous fundraising delays on both sides of the Atlantic.

When was the Statue of Liberty built?

The Statue of Liberty was built in France 1882, was transported to America on October 28, 1886 and was then pronounced the Statue of Liberty.

France and America both worked on the Statue of Liberty. France was building the actual statue and America was working on the foundation for the statue. Both had trouble financing their efforts so the statue was actually about 10 years late from the time the visionaries wanted to dedicate the statue. Anyhow, the statue was completed in July of 1884 in France but the foundation for her wasn't completed until 1886 in America. On October 28, 1886 the dedication of the statue took place after she had been transported from France to the US in crates and then reassembled.

What was the Charter of French Liberties?

The Charter of French Liberties, also called the Coronation Charter, was a written proclamation by Henry I of England, issued upon his accession to the throne in 1100. It sought to bind the King to certain laws regarding the treatment of church officials and nobles. It is considered a landmark document[1] in English legal history and a forerunner of Magna Carta.

The document addressed abuses of royal power by his predecessor, his brother William Rufus, as perceived by the nobility, specifically the over-taxation of the barons, the abuse of vacant sees, and the practices of simony and pluralism.

The charter of liberties was generally ignored by monarchs until in 1213 Archbishop Langton reminded the nobles that their liberties had been guaranteed over a century prior in Henry I's Charter of Liberties.

What is a British Penny made from?

Way back over 1,000 years ago, British Pennies were made from gold. From about 1200 AD to the end of the 18th century, they were made from silver. Even now, all coins in the Maundy sets are still made from silver, including the Maundy Pennies.

Silver became far too expensive to be making low value coins from, so they were then made from copper from 1797.

During the reign of Queen Victoria, Pennies changed to bronze from 1860 until the last predecimal Penny was minted in 1967. Bronze is mostly copper, but the alloy of 95.5% copper, 3% tin and 1.5% zinc made them a lot more durable and subsequently a little cheaper to produce.

From decimalisation in 1971, Pennies were still made of bronze, but even that became too expensive, so from 1992, they were made from copper plated steel which makes them very cheap to make and very durable.
