DESCRIPTION: This series contains records for the Utah Commemorative Quarter Contest and the Commemorative Quarter Launch. As part of its 50 State Quarters Program, the United States Mint planned to produce over 450 million quarters honoring the State of Utah. To assist in the design selection process for the Utah quarter, the State of Utah sponsored a design contest open to school children and adults. Submissions were accepted until June 1, 2005, and the winning design was unveiled in May of 2006. Minted Utah quarters began circulation in 2007. Contest materials include copies of the design criteria and rules, contest submissions and narratives, correspondence, booklets, media recordings, and other memorabilia. Information found on the submission form includes submitter's name, address, and design contents.

The Commemorative Quarter Launch introduced the new Utah quarter to the people of Utah and the Nation. The Launch was held on November 9th, 2007, at the Rio Grande Depot in Salt Lake City. Launch materials include correspondence; memorabilia; and planning, implementation, and media materials.
