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

Designs had previously been proposed for those two quarters back in October 2015, but the CCAC rejected them all

For the Effigy Mounds quarter, 27 reverse designs were considered by CCAC this time around.
