Imprinted on Their Coins

What was imprinted on the two sides of the first coins issued in early Utah?
a.                  An eagle and George Washington
b.                  The Star of David and the Salt Lake Temple
c.                   The all seeing eye and Holiness to the Lord
d.                  The Nauvoo Temple and Brigham Young
Yesterday’s answer:
C.   The House of the Lord for the Presidency of the High and Most Holy Priesthood, after the Order of Melchizedek
About the City of Zion:   The temple was to be called “The House of the Lord for the Presidency of the High and Most Holy Priesthood, after the Order of Melchizedek.” It was to be eighty-seven by sixty-one feet, and twenty-eight feet high—two stories. Ten feet taken off the east end for stairways to the upper floor, leaving the main halls seventy-seven by sixty-one feet. The main features of the internal arrangements were that a series of three pulpits or stand rising one above another were arranged in the east and west end of the halls, to be occupied by the several presidencies of the Melchizedek and Aaronic priesthood respectively, with drop curtains, for the ceiling so arranged as to admit of each hall being divided into four compartments when thought necessary.
