The 2001 introduction of a Statehood Quarter for the state of New York marked the start of the third year of issue in the series. Like its successor, the bullion Silver ATB coin series, the Statehood Quarters were released with one design every ten weeks, resulting in five issues per year. New York was the first state issued in 2001 and the 11th overall.
All coins in the series feature designs honoring the background and history of the state. Designs such as state flags, portraits of living persons, and facial portraits of deceased persons were blocked in the series. The designs had to emblematic of the history, traditions, and symbols associated with a given state. Additionally, the designs were released in order from the date each state either ratified the US Constitution or was later admitted to the Union. New York was the 11th state to ratify the Constitution, joining the Union as a result on Jul 26, 1789.
