The obverse (front) features the Utah State Seal which includes an eagle, two American Flag banners, and a Beehive. The little guy in the upper right corner is a worker bee. (The Utah State Motto is Industry.)
The reverse (back) features three of our state emblems: the California Seagull is the state bird, the Rocky Mountain Elk is the state animal, and the Blue Spruce is the state tree.
The little white flowers used to separate elements around the edge of the front and back of the coin are Sego Lilies, our state flower.
