CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The fourth and final medallion commemorating Nevada's Sesquicentennial will feature Lake Tahoe, Great Basin National Park, Hoover Dam or a combination tribute to cattle drives and casinos.

Nevadans started casting votes online Wednesday for the coin designs celebrating the state's 150th birthday.

One entitled "Discover Both Sides of Nevada" features a cowboy on horseback and an Ace of hearts with dice and a poker chip.

"Hoover Dam — Then and Now" depicts a worker hanging from the dam during its construction in the 1930s against the backdrop of the new bridge spanning the Colorado River.

A bighorn sheep adorns "Great Basin National Park," while "Lake Tahoe" shows the SS Tahoe that delivered mail and shuttled tourists across the azure waters before the lakeshore highway was completed in 1935.

Online voting continues through Aug. 7 at
