Description
 
The New Mexico quarter is the 47th coin in the State Quarters collection. This Quarter features a unique design that was selected by the state to reflect its history and culture. About 1,000 suggestions were received from New Mexico residents, the Commission forwarded the top four ideas to the US Mint. The Zia Symbol over a topographical state outline was the final design chosen.

The Zia sun symbol was developed by the Zia Pueblo in New Mexico. The Zia Pueblo believed the sun symbol represented the giver of all good, who gave life in groups of 4. The symbol consists of a circle symbolizing life and love, and 4 groups of 4 rays that represent the 4 directions, the 4 seasons, the 4 phases of the day, (Sunrise, Morning, Noon & night), and the 4 divisions of life (childhood, youth, middle years & old age). The design also includes the state nickname "Land of Enchantment" and the year, "1912".
