2012 - Chaco Culture

Posted by Derek Sawchenko on

In 2008, Congress approved America’s National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act. President George W. Bush signed the act, making it official law, on December 23, 2008. The act led to the creation of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program in 2010. These silver quarters celebrate national parks and other historic sites.  The United States Mint issues and released the coins in 2010. Yellowstone National Park, Hawai’i Volcanoes Volcanoes National Park, Kisatchie National Forest, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and more have been commemorated by the program.

            We are selling the 2012-P Chaco Culture SP70 graded. There are only 252 coins in SP70 condition. It is the second quarter of 2012 in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. The coin pays tribute to the Chaco Culture National Historic Park in New Mexico. Between 850 A.D. and 1250, Puebloan culture flourished. Pueblo Indians, Hopi Indians of Arizona, and Navajo Indians of the southwest lived in Chaco Canyon. The civilization is known for its outstanding architectural structures. The area was instituted as a national site on March 11, 1907.

            The 2012 – Chaco Culture is a beautiful coin. The obverse side of the coin depicts the first president of the U.S., George Washington with the following inscriptions: Liberty, United States of America, In God We Trust, and Quarter Dollar. The reverse side of the coin contains an illustration of the Chaco Canyon with the following inscriptions: Chaco Culture, New Mexico, 2012, and E Pluribus Erem (out/one of many).
