From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
The Statue of Liberty is a famous statue honoring the friendship between France and the United States of America found on Liberty Island, New York City. It is one of the three landmarks in the city that Koopa Troopas stole artifacts from during the events of the game Mario is Missing!. Luigi's task is to find the Statue of Liberty Torch, which symbolizes enlightenment, and deliver it back to the statue. Upon success, he is rewarded 1,750 dollars plus a bonus prize of 2,500 dollars. It made its appearance at the end of Recycled Koopa in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3.
In Mario Kart Tour, the actual Statue of Liberty is visible in the background of a new course based on New York City.
