2017 America the Beautiful Quarters® Program – Ellis Island Rolls and Bags are now available.
The Ellis Island quarter is the fourth iteration in the 2017 America the Beautiful Quarters® and 39th overall in the program. From 1892 to 1954, Ellis Island was the largest and most active immigration station in the United States, where approximately 12 million immigrants were processed.
On average, the inspection process took approximately three to seven hours. For the vast majority of immigrants, Ellis Island truly was an “Island of Hope”—the first stop on their way to new opportunities and experiences in the United States.
The reverse (tails) design depicts an immigrant family approaching Ellis Island with a mixture of hope and uncertainty. Inscriptions are “ELLIS ISLAND,” “NEW JERSEY,” “2017,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
