For the America the Beautiful Series of silver coins, the United States Mint, Treasury Department, and the Secretary of the Treasury collaborated with citizen advisory committees to make selections for representative national monuments, parks, and forests from each of the 50 states, five overseas territories, and the District of Columbia.
Ellis Island is actually just one part of the larger Statue of Liberty National Monument complex run by the U.S. National Park Service. Comprised of two islands, the national monument includes Liberty Island with the famed Statue of Liberty reaching her torch high into the sky as a light for the oppressed people of the world.
The obverse of all America the Beautiful quarters features the same left-profile portrait of President George Washington you’ll find on the nation’s circulation quarter. This portrait was created in 1932 and debuted that same year on the quarter as part of the country’s bicentennial celebration of Washington’s birth.
On the reverse of all 2017 5 oz ATB Silver Ellis Island National Monument Statue of Liberty Coins is the image of the immigration processing building that still stands to this day on Ellis Island. In the foreground, an immigrant family looks on as their boat pulls into the harbor with a young boy holding a small American flag in his hand.
