This 2017 Ellis Island National Monument in New Jersey quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
Ellis Island National Monument in New Jersey is the fourth of five sites commemorated in 2017 on a U.S. quarter. Officially, it is the thirty-ninth of fifty-six coins from the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.
Created by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, the selected design depicts an immigrant family approaching Ellis Island with a mixture of hope and uncertainty. Surrounding the design are inscriptions reading "ELLIS ISLAND," "NEW JERSEY," "2017," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Quarter obverses share the same portrait of George Washington as created by John Flanagan.
