Reverse side features the Commonwealth statue, an allegorical female figure.
The statue Commonwealth, designed by New York sculptor Roland Hinton Perry, is a bronze-gilded 14 feet 6 inch high female form that has topped Pennsylvania’s state capitol dome in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania since May 25, 1905. Her right arm extends in kindness and her left arm grasps a ribbon mace to symbolize justice. The image of the keystone honors the states nickname, The Keystone State. At a Jefferson Republican victory rally in October 1802, Pennsylvania was toasted as the keystone in the federal union.
