2017 Ellis Island Quarter released at the former immigration center

The new 2017 Ellis Island National Monument quarter, 39th coin in the 2010-2021 National Park quarter series and 4th new design for 2017, is now in circulation. An official launch ceremony for the new Ellis Island quarter was held at 11 am ET on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at the flag pole area of the Ellis Island Immigration Center.

Located in New York Harbor close to Liberty Island where the iconic Statue of Liberty stands, Ellis Island was the nation’s busiest immigration center during its years of operation from 1892-1954. The main facility now houses a museum that tells the story of immigration to America and the major role Ellis Island played in the growth and development of our country. Ellis Island National Monument, which includes the nearby Statue of Liberty, is visited by nearly two million people each year.
