Nevada's state seal is rich with symbols. Mineral resources are represented by a silver miner and his team moving a carload of ore from a mountain on the left. A quartz mill stands at the base of another mountain on the right.

Symbols for transportation and communication are telegraph poles and a train steaming across the background. In the foreground are symbols for agriculture - a sheaf of wheat, a sickle, and a plow.

Nevada's natural beauty is represented by a shining sun rising over snow-capped peaks. The inner circle of the seal displays the motto "All for Our Country" and 36 stars (Nevada is the 36th state to join the Union). The perimeter of the seal states "The Great Seal of the State of Nevada".
