Arizona State Quarter
Designed by Joel Iskowitz, the reverse side of the Arizona state quarter includes a picturesque scene of the Grand Canyon, and a banner with the inscription "Grand Canyon State".
With the sun setting in the distance, the name of the state, and date of statehood sit atop the image. The year 2008 and "E Pluribus Unum" rest at the bottom of the image.
Residents of Arizona State submitted designs for the quarter, and from those, five final coins made the cut.
From those choices Treasurer Dean Martin said, “Arizona has a proud history as a land of natural beauty and rugged individualism. Designs 1, 2 & 3 all would make great quarters; but as the Grand Canyon State, we should have the Grand Canyon on our quarter. My recommendation will be for design number 2; it represents the grand diversity of Arizona’s landscape.”
