Thomas Paine was voted into the Hall of Fame by the Trustees of New York University in 1945, and this bronze bust was commissioned to be placed in the Colonnade of the Immortals. A dedication ceremony was held in 1952. Sculpted by Malvina Hoffman, the bronze tablet below the bust bears the opening lines of The American Crisis IV. Today, the property is part of New York City's community college system.

This miniature of Thomas Paine was a present for Thomas Jefferson from John Trumbull who painted it in 1788 while Paine and Trumbull were both in London. When Jefferson received the miniature, he wrote Trumbull, "I am to thank you a thousand times for the portrait of Mr. Paine, which is a perfect likeness..." The miniature is now held at Monticello.

This portrait of Paine appears in the front of volume VI or VII of Van der Weyde's 10-volume Life and Works of Thomas Paine. The legend reads: "Painted in 1778 for Henry Laurens, President of the Continental Congress." There is no information on the painter or where the painting still exists.

The "Paine U.S. Postage Stamp" was issued in 1968 as a 40 cent commemorative stamp, largely through the dedicated efforts of Joseph Lewis of New Jersey, who repeatedly contributed funds and labor to pay homage to Paine. The image is from the portrait by John Wesley Jarvis, which is in the National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC.
