The Utah State Quarter is the fifth and final state Quarter issued in 2007. State quarters are issued in the order in which the states joined the Union. Utah was admitted to statehood in 1896 as the 45th state, so Utah is the 45th State Quarter. Utah was initially prevented from statehood because of the Mormon practice of Polygamy. The Mormons abandoned polygamy in 1890. The territory of Utah was formed in 1850. In 1869, Utah became the "Crossroads of the West" thanks to its central location and the newly-completed transcontinental railroad. The Utah state Quarter design was selected from suggestions received by the Utah Commemorative Quarter Commission. The winning design is "Crossroads of the West" featuring two locomotives and a railroad spike to symbolize the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. One locomotive is facing West while the other is facing East..

Each uncirculated quarter is layered 7 times in pure platinum. Each coin is encapsulated to protect it's condition.

In December 1997, America's most adventurous coin program became a reality when President Clinton signed legislation authorizing the U.S. Mint to issue the innovative 50 State Quarters collection. Starting in January 1999, each of the 50 states in the Union will be honored on a unique Quarter Dollar commemorative coin. Five states will be featured each year, based on the order in which they ratified the Constitution or became states. The mint marks can be found to the right of George Washington's portrait on the obverse: the small "P" indicates the Philadelphia Mint and the small "D" refers to the Denver.
