Details & Specifications

This 2012 5 ounce silver coin from the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful series depicts the Chaco Culture National Historic Park, one of the finest examples of Pre-Columbian architecture in North America. This coin is substantial, containing a whopping 5 ounces of pure silver. The finely engraved design, also featured on the circulating America the Beautiful quarters from 2012, is especially striking on this larger canvas. This coin is slabbed and graded at SP70 by NGC.

The Puebloan groups that constructed Chaco Canyon and other stone pueblos throughout the Southwest flourished around the 9th century, eventually declining in the mid 13th century as the economies and trade networks that sustained these settlements fell apart. Chaco Canyon is dominated by the ruins of multiple semi-circular "Great Houses," the largest and most intensively investigated being Pueblo Bonito.

The coin's reverse depicts the raised kivas, sacred buildings where meetings and rituals were performed, of Chetro Ketl. Chetro Ketl was one of the Great Houses of Chaco, along with Pueblo Bonito. The Chaco Great Houses were connected by a series of roads to other sites throughout the Four Corners area of the Southwest, liking these sites together within a vast trading network that saw a variety of non-local good s arriving in Chaco. Surrounding the image of the Chetro Ketl kivas are inscriptions reading "CHACO CULTURE," "NEW MEXICO," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

The obverse features the bust of George Washington that has been featured on U.S. quarters since 1932. Throughout the field around Washington's image are inscriptions bearing the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," and the denomination of "QUARTER DOLLAR."
