A brilliant, unique, luxurious and intriguing metropolis has become the dream of thousands of tourists and hunters of millions. 'Big Apple' -new York - beckons with its brilliance and the illusion of an easy life.

Many people associate it with huge skyscrapers, the incessant bustle of business life, luxury mansions, expensive shops. Is new York as magnificent in everyday life as its magnificent facade? Or is it just a gloss, a gold dust, vainly exalted by writers, Directors, collectors?
To understand the phenomenon of new York, you need to understand how a small European settlement on the territory of the Manahattoo and Canarsie Indian tribes turned into New York.

Let's turn to its history. The Americans took possession of the city in 1783 during the War of independence from great Britain. New York's strategic location on the East coast of the American continent made it the center of major events that took place in the young American state.

Numerous coins are dedicated to George Washington, and his image adorns the well-known us 1 dollar bill.

The beginning of the twentieth century is considered the starting point from which the United States began to increase its financial potential. This is partly due to the launch of the famous new York stock exchange, which today is one of the most influential financial institutions in the world.
In 2017, the legendary Exchange turned 200 years old. To commemorate this event, many countries have issued commemorative copies of collectible coins. The Polish mint minted 999 silver coins with a face value of 1000 francs for the Republic of Cameroon.

From the middle of the NINETEENTH century, immigrants from the starving Old world-Ireland, Italy, and great Britain - began to flock to new York. Let's not forget about the racial discrimination of the black population of the southern States, which is also beginning to arrive EN masse in new York in search of a better life.

The twentieth century was marked by a huge increase in the city's population, the number of which by the 50s exceeded the 8 million mark. The economic and social life of the metropolis was periodically feverish. The crisis of the 70s, and as a result, rampant crime - made the city not such a 'dream'.
