|KM#||422||Dates||2008||Notes||50 State Quarter (New Mexico)|
A silhouette of New Mexico in relief, with the Zia Sun symbol, a sacred symbol of the Zia people of southern New Mexico, covering it near the top. The Zia sun symbol has a circle cut out of its centre and from this circle radiate rays in four directions - up, down, left and right. Each group consists of four rays, rounded at the ends, with the two middle rays being slightly longer than the outer rays. Each of these groups look almost like the four fingers of a hand. Inside the bottom right-had corner of the state is written in tiny lettering "DE". Around the bottom left-hand corner of the state is written "LAND OF ENCHANTMENT", one word to each line. At the top of the coin is written "NEW MEXICO" and below it is written "1912". At the bottom of the coin is written in small lettering "E PLURIBUS UNUM", and above it, "2008".
