Theoretically, certificates from Utah railroads ought to date from as early as 1869 when the last golden spike of the transcontinental railroad was tapped in west of Ogden. However, the earliest Utah railroad certificate known so far is dated 1872 from the Salt Lake City Railroad Co. To assemble a collection of many Utah certificates, you will need to enlarge your interests to the Union Pacific, Central Pacific, Western Pacific and D&RGW.

On the central shield is a beehive, the principal logo of the state of Utah. Below the beehive is '1847,' the date Mormons reached the Great Salt Lake. Behind the shield are two American flags. Above is an eagle with outstretched wings.
