The Chaco Culture National Historical Park quarter is the second to be released in 2012 and the 12th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This bag is filled with 100 Chaco Culture National Historical Park quarters minted on the main production floor of the United States Mint at Philadelphia, each bearing the “P” mint mark.
The quarter’s reverse (tails side) image illustrates a view to the west of two elevated kivas that are part of the Chetro Ketl Complex. The design also shows the north wall of Chetro Ketl and the north wall of the canyon, reflecting the culture that the park was established to commemorate. Inscriptions are CHACO CULTURE, NEW MEXICO, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.
