This design was taken from the Washington Quarter, and showcases a left-facing profile of George Washington. Above him, United States of America is stamped in large lettering. Under Washington, the words Quarter Dollar are stamped to denote the coins face value. Additionally, the word Liberty and the phrase In God We Trust are marked to his left and right side respectively.Reverse Design: On the reverse side of the coin youll find the image depicts an immigrant family approaching Ellis Island with a mixture of hope and uncertainty. The hospital building can be seen in the background. Ellis Island National Monument was the first stop in America for the 12 million immigrants processed through the islands facility, and for most it was truly an Island of Hope. It was the busiest immigrant inspection site in America for over 60 years. So great was the wave of immigration during this time, 40% of Americans can trace their ancestry to Ellis Island today. The average inspection process took 3 to 7 hours, but sadly for some the island also became known as an Island of Tears. By the 1950s immigration laws began to evolve and it became easier for embassies overseas to handle outgoing residents and visas. In 1954, Ellis Island closed.
In the 1990s, thanks to the construction from the New York subway system, the park was able to expand from 3.3 to 27.5 acres and reopened with an Ellis Island museum. Long considered part of New York state, in 1998 a United States Supreme Court decision found that most of the island is in New Jersey. Today the park is part of New Jersey, and is situated adjacent to the Statue of Liberty National Monument on the New York side of the harbor.
