United States Mint Opens Sales for Rolls and Bags of Ellis Island Quarters on August 28

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint will open sales for products featuring America the Beautiful Quarters® Program coins honoring Ellis Island starting on August 28 at noon Eastern Time (ET).

The coin’s reverse (tails) design depicts an immigrant family approaching Ellis Island with a mixture of hope and uncertainty. The hospital building can be seen in the background. Inscriptions are “ELLIS ISLAND,” “NEW JERSEY,” “2017,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The reverse was designed by Barbara Fox, Artistic Infusion Program designer, and engraved by Phebe Hemphill, United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver. The obverse (heads) design features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan.

Product options and their prices are as follows: 

Coins in the rolls and bags are struck on the main production floors at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint facilities. The three-roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation.

The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name “Ellis Island”; the abbreviation “NJ” for New Jersey; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D,” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Ellis Island,” “NJ,” and “P,” “D,” or “S.”

Orders will be accepted online at https://catalog.usmint.gov/ and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing-and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order by calling 1-888-321-MINT (6468). Information on shipping options is available here
