Found in New Mexico, Chaco preserves the area of one of the best concentrations of ancient Pueblo dwellings found in the southwest portion of the United States. The location was home to many Native Americans over a thousand years ago who built the structures – some of which were the largest buildings in North America until the industrial revolution of the 1800′s.

The US Mint will wrap forty circulation quality Chaco Culture quarters from its facility in Denver and forty circulation quality quarters from its facility in Philadelphia in special Mint wrapping. Each wrapper indicates the rolls contents as well as its face value.
