Powerful Ellis Island Design by Barbara Fox
Barbara Fox designed and Phebe Hemphill sculpted the reverse image. It features an immigrant family about to make their first stop in the New World at Ellis Island. A smiling young boy holds an American flag, while his mother casts a look down and slightly back, as though reflecting on the lives they left behind. The boy's father looks forward, aware of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. In the background is the immigration processing building, where they would be accepted into their new home. As with other America The Beautiful (ATB) coins, the obverse features John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington along with several inscriptions.
Virtually Flawless MS69 DPL ER
This coin received a grade of Mint State 69 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation(NGC). That grade indicates that the coin appears perfect to the naked eye but has at least one imperfection that is revealed under magnification. NGC also credited the coin with having strong reflectivity by labeling it Deep Prooflike.
