Utah's skep quarter

Here is one of the final designs for Utah's Commemorative Quarter according to KUTV. The two other designs feature a woman snowboarder and a golden spike.

The Beehive became part of the first official seal of the State of Utah in 1897 and official state emblem in 1959. Symbolizing industry and working together for common purposes, the Beehive is evident on the State flag, license plates, highway patrol vehicles, uniform patches, fire hydrants, stationery, and in other forms. Utah is nicknamed "The Beehive State". The honey bee is the official insect of the state.
