Powerful Ellis Island Design by Barbara Fox
The reverse image, which features an immigrant family arriving at Ellis Island, was designed by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. A young boy holds an American flag next to his mother, who holds a bag that contains everything that the family was able to bring with them to begin their new lives. The woman appears to be deep in thought as her husband looks off into the distance. In the backgrounds is the processing building, where new immigrants were typically admitted into, but in a few cases were turned away from, the United States.
Flawless SP70 FR
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's graders found that this coin is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification. Accordingly, they graded it Specimen 70. The term "Specimen" is used because of the coin's matte finish.
