The Chaco Culture quarter dollar, designed by U.S. Mint Artistic
Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver and sculptured by U.S.
Mint Medallic Sculptor Phebe Hemphill, illustrates a view to the west
of two elevated kivas that are part of the Chetro Ketl Complex, the
north wall of Chetro Ketl and the north wall of the canyon.
A ceremonial launch event is tentatively being scheduled at the
Chaco Culture National Historical Park for April 26. After the event,
$10 rolls of the circulation quality quarter dollars will be available
at face value. ■
