Saguaro, Grand Canyon to share billing on Ariz. coin


Recommended Posts

PHOENIX — And the winners are: the Grand Canyon and a saguaro.

Gov. Janet Napolitano will announce today that she has chosen the design for the new state quarter that includes perhaps the two most recognizable features of Arizona.

The design, also the winner in a public vote, will include a rising or setting sun; not even members of the special commission that picked the design were sure which it was.

Yeah, I guess it's pretty nice - certainly predictable. Problem with a busy design is that you don't get to emphasize any one element and the saguaro is worthy of emphasis.


I'm begining to think that the Hawaii design is going to be my favorite SQ and I haven't even seen one in the metal.
