If you wish to add the Ellis Island America the Beautiful coin to your collection, we recommend acting quickly before it’s too late. The US Mint released a statement noting that its supply of the America the Beautiful–Ellis Island 5-ounce silver bullion coins has been sold out! The mint went on to say that there are no current plans to produce additional inventory at this time.
Beginning in 2010, the US Mint has been producing the America the Beautiful series of 5 oz silver coins featuring famous sites and landmarks from each of the 50 states and US territories. Five designs are to be produced each year until the 56-coin series is complete. The fourth coin produced in 2017 features Ellis Island to represent New Jersey.
Designed by Barbara Fox and sculpted by Hemphill, this coin features a hopeful family of immigrants arriving in America through Ellis Island. Stemming back to 1892, Ellis Island saw over 12 million immigrants pass through. Around 40 percent of the current US population can trace their ancestry back to Ellis Island, making this coin a celebration of the nation’s history and heritage.
All Ellis Island coins purchased through Provident are guaranteed to be received from the mint and shipped to you in a timely manner. We encourage you to act now before supplies run out.
