The obverse of 2023 Proof Native America the Beautiful New Mexico Silver Coins contains a depiction of Chetro Ketl under construction. In it, we see a portion of the legendary D-shaped structure as an indigenous figure hauls materials for the building. Across the rim are a series of inscriptions reading Kintyel, 2023, New Mexico, Diné. Kintyel is the Navajo name for Chetro Ketl, while Diné is simply another name for the Navajo tribe.
On the reverse of 2023 Proof Native America the Beautiful New Mexico Silver Coins, you will see the official series logo. This consists of a bald eagle in left-profile relief surrounded by a traditional Native American star pattern. Between each point of the star, you will see an arrowhead design. There are also inscriptions reading Native America the Beautiful, 1 Ounce, One Dollar, .999 Ag.
While there is debate surrounding the purpose of Chetro Ketl, many believe that it served as a ceremony site occupied by priests. During important ritual events, the building may then have been open to other tribal members. Constructed in a massive D-shape with sandstone blocks and timber, Chetro Ketl is an architectural marvel with a surface area covering nearly 6 acres.
