Like other coins in this series, this one features John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington on the obverse. The left-side portrait of the president dominates this face, while inscriptions such as the coin's face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR," take up much of the rest of the available space.
On the reverse is an image of a family of immigrants arriving at Ellis Island. A boy stands next to his parents holding an American flag. In his mother's arm is a bag in which she carries all that they took with them on their quest to start their lives anew. The boy's father looks forward at the immigration processing building, their first stop in the New World. Four inscriptions are on the rim frame, including "ELLIS ISLAND" and "NEW JERSEY."
