Utah designs to receive feedback

quarter unveil 5.JPGUtah residents will have a say in what goes on the Utah state quarter.

Gov. Jon M. Huntsman Jr. has invited people around the state to comment on designs for the quarter.

?The U.S. Mint has reviewed and approved the three design concepts submitted,? said Gov. Huntsman. ?I look forward to receiving public comment on the three designs.?

Depicted in the designs are the driving of the golden spike, a beehive and a female snowboarder.

The concepts were taken from nearly 5,000 ideas submitted by school children and citizens of the state. Then the designs were created by artists selected by the Mint for their expertise in creating artwork for coins. 

?One of the artists lives in Utah, though the Mint will not disclose the name of this artist until the final design has been approved,? said Margaret Hunt, chair of the Utah Commemorative Quarter Commission.

State residents may provide feedback for the Utah quarter design by taking an online survey at www.utah.gov until May 8.

Written comment may be addressed to the Utah Commemorative Quarter Commis-sion, 617 East South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84102.

The final design selection will be made by Gov. Huntsman in mid-May.  A total of 450 million Utah quarters will be minted and are scheduled for release to circulation in late 2007.
