The reverse was designed by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. It features an immigrant family arriving at Ellis Island at the end of their long transAtlantic journey. A young boy holds an American flag as he stands next to his parents on a boat as it approaches the island. In the background is the processing building. Four inscriptions are on the rim frame, including "ELLIS ISLAND" and "NEW JERSEY."
