- The reverse of the coin shows an immigrant family as they approach Ellis Island.
- The 5 National Parks Released in 2017 were Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa, Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Washington D.C., Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri, Ellis Island (Statue of Liberty National Monument) in New Jersey and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Indiana.

The "Island of Hope" saw over 12 million immigrants pass through from 1892-1954. Ellis Island was known as so because many foreigners entering for the first time saw it as the first stop in their new life full of opportunities.
