The Ellis Island Coin, with its Enormous Size, is Sure to be an Interesting Addition to Your Holding

5:40 AM

Each coin contains 5 troy ounces of .999 pure silver and is 3" in diameter. The weight and purity is stamped on the coin edge, which is smooth rather than reeded.

America the Beautiful - Ellis Island coins are produced by the U.S. Mint and are official, legal tender. Of course the "Quarter Dollar" face value is a far cry from the coin's worth as 5 ounces of silver so the coins are not intended to be actually spent as legal tender.

The Ellis Island coins are the 39th release in a series planned to include 56 coins in total. The series was launched in 2010. Five new designs are released each year. Each features a National Park, National Monument or other prominent historical site.
