The Island That Launched Millions of American Journeys!

Back in the 1700s, it would be easy to overlook the small collection of sand in the middle of New York Harbor known as Kioshk Island. But over the years, the island would evolve and literally grow to serve as the cornerstone of over 12 million immigrant experiences. From 1892 to 1954, Ellis Island was home to the United States' first federal immigration station, processing the paperwork and inspecting the health of thousands of newcomers each day. Known as an "Island of Hope" for its promise of a new life, as well as an "Island of Tears" for those who couldn't move past its shores, Ellis Island is still an iconic symbol of our country's promise and history.

Today, Ellis Island is part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument, with the center's main building serving as the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration. The island still attracts millions from around the world -- only now the buildings house the images and stories of those who arrived on its shores, engaging and inspiring generations to come. Now, representing the state of New Jersey, this landmark has been immortalized as part of the United States Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters® Program -- and you can bring it home to your collection with this special three-quarter set!

  • ILLUSTRATIVE, INSPIRING DESIGN-- Featuring the talents of designer Barbara Fox and sculptor Phebe Hemphill, this silver coin's reverse design captures the hope, uncertainty and promise of an immigrant family as they approach the island's main building. Flip the coin over, and you'll find John Flanagan's standard portrait of George Washington.
  • THREE QUARTERS, THREE DIFFERENT MINTS!-- Each of these three quarters hails from a different United States Mint location. Both the mints at Philadelphia and Denver contribute an uncirculated coin each, while the single proof coin in the set comes from the San Francisco mint -- known for producing exceptionally well-struck proofs with razor-sharp details and mirrored surfaces.
  • ALL SEALED IN A COLORFUL CARD-- Your 2017 Ellis Island Three-Quarter Set will arrive to you in its original United States Mint packaging. All three coins are sealed together in a plastic card, giving you uninhibited visual access to the amazing detail of each quarter. In addition, your display card features a vivid overhead image of Ellis Island, information about the site and a certificate of authenticity.
  • A COLLECTORS' FAVORITE SERIES! -- This fourth America the Beautiful Quarter release of 2017 continues the popular series, first established in 2010 and still attracting new collectors to the fold!
