The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee convened Feb. 16 to discuss proposed reverse designs for two 2017 America the Beautiful quarter dollars, one honoring Ellis Island National Monument in New Jersey and another honoring Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa. 

Designs for the reverses for these two coins had previously been proposed back in October 2015, but the CCAC rejected them all

For the Ellis Island quarter, 16 reverse designs were considered by CCAC this time around.
