Description

2008 New Mexico State Quarters
Obverse Side
The obverse will continue to bear the familiar restored 1932 John Flannagan image of George Washington.
Reverse Side
The reverse side of New Mexico’s quarter features a Zia sun symbol over a topographical outline of the State with the inscription Land of Enchantment. The coin also bears the inscriptions New Mexico and 1912. The great influence of Native American cultures can be found throughout New Mexico. The Zia Pueblo believe the sun symbol represents the giver of all good, who gave gifts in groups of four. From the circle representing life and love without beginning or end, the four groups of four rays that emanate represent the four directions, the four seasons, the four phases of a day sunrise, noon, evening, and night, and the four divisions of life childhood, youth, middle years, and old age.
