The design of the coin of the Utah State Quarter includes inscriptions, such as “Utah”, “1896“, “2007 E PLURIBUS UNUM". The tail side of the Utah quarter coin portrays two locomotives moving in the direction of the golden spike, which joined the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads, connecting East to West and converting both the Utah Territory and the country with the writing "Crossroads of the West."

The steam engines met at Promontory in Utah on the 10th of May 1869, for the "Joining of the Rails Ceremony," at which the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads concluded the transcontinental course. The occasion was important to the growth of the American West, as it made cross-country journey more expedient and inexpensive. The erection of the railroad, and the succeeding mining explosion, brought varied tribal and spiritual populations to the Utah State. The railroad as well, represented the varying technology, and stirred Utah from an agrarian economy to a more developed one.
Utah State is incorporated with historic places, such as the Golden Spike National Historic Site, Anasazi State Park and Museum, Territorial Statehouse State Park, This Is the Place State Park and the Historic Temple Square.
Tourists who come to Utah can take pleasure in a number of tourist attractions, including the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park, Tooele County Railroad Museum, Lagoon, Park City Silver Mine Adventure and the Minnetonka Cave.
