New Hampshire State Motto

New Hampshire bicentennial quarter - click to see all state quarters
New Hampshire became the 9th state in 1788 (see STATEHOOD ORDER). New Hampshire's state quarter features the Old Man of the Mountain (the state emblem) and New Hampshire's state motto: "Live Free or Die" (public domain image on Wikipedia). See All 50 state quarters - All State Mottos - National Motto.

Live Free or Die

New Hampshire's official state motto is "Live Free or Die," adopted in 1945 as World war II approached its end (the Old Man of the Mountain was also adopted at this time as the state emblem).

"Live Free Or Die," is a quote from a toast by General John Stark, New Hampshire's most distinguished hero of the Revolutionary War. In 2007, New Hampshire adopted its 10th official state song: "Live Free or Die" by Barry Palmer.
