On the reverse, “Territory of Utah 1850” surrounds an image of a Beehive. With the end of the Mexican War, the United States gained possession of the Salt Lake Valley in 1848. It was officially declared an American territory in 1850. Although the Mormons wanted the territory to be officially named Deseret, Congress decided instead to name it Utah, after the Ute Indians who lived in the region. Earlier, in July 1847, Brigham Young planted his walking stick at a certain point while traversing the ground with some associates and exclaimed, "Here we will build the temple of our God." Plans were drawn, construction began in 1853 and it was completed 1892.
