Built between 990 and 1075 AD, Chetro Ketl has the largest surface area of any great house in the Chaco region. However, severe drought caused the inhabitants of the house to abandon it by the mid-13th century. Public awareness of the site emerged in 1823 when the site was rediscovered by New Mexican governor Jose Antonio Vizcarra. It is believed that the house was mainly occupied by religious figures, who held important ceremonies and rituals that were also open to other tribal members.
On the obverse of 2023 Colorized Native America the Beautiful New Mexico Silver Coins there is a depiction of Chetro Ketl. In this design, we see an indigenous figure hauling building materials for the great house. We also see inscriptions that read Kintyel, 2023, New Mexico, Diné. Please note that Kintyel is simply the Navajo name for this archeological site. Also, Diné is how the Navajo historically referred to themselves.
The reverse of 2023 1 oz Colorized New Mexico Silver Coins contains the Native America the Beautiful logo. This official emblem contains a bald eagle facing left as well as a traditional Native American star motif. Inscriptions are also included across the edge that read Native America the Beautiful, 1 Ounce, One Dollar, .999 Ag.
