2017 / America the Beautiful Quarter BU / Ellis Island National Monument (Statue of Liberty)
America the Beautiful Quarters capture the breathtaking beauty of America’s natural landscapes that have inspired countless poets, adventurers, and artists. The U.S. is honoring our Nation's national parks and sites on quarters featuring five new designs each year.
Released in 2017, the Ellis Island National Monument (Statue of Liberty) Quarter honors the site in New Jersey which opened on January 1st, 1892. After opening, Ellis Island became the prime facility for immigrants to enter into America. Over 12 million immigrants passed through Ellis Island, and almost 40% of the current US population can trace their ancestry to Ellis. Ellis Island National Monument is also part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. Many immigrants saw the Statue of Liberty as a sign of hope when they pulled into Ellis Island.
