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.
On neighboring Ellis Island, the main building of the former immigration complex was the busiest immigration center on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Between 1892 and 1954 when the complex was active, an estimated 12 million immigrants came to the US through the immigration processing center on Ellis Island.
All 2017 5 oz ATB Ellis Island National Monument Statue of Liberty Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, however you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from striking blanks during the production process.
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 Ellis Island National Monument Statue of Liberty Silver 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.
All America the Beautiful silver bullion and proof coins are struck by the United States Mint, with responsibility for production falling to the Denver Mint and Philadelphia Mint.
