2016-03-12 Sat

On March 15th, the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a meeting to review coin designs and talk about themes for a possible series of WWI bronze medals. The CCAC is given the responsibility to advice Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to all United States coins and medals.

Candidate designs for the following coins will be discussed at the meeting:

2017 Boys Town Centennial Commemorative Coins;

2017 American Eagle Platinum Proof Coin (20th Anniversary); and

2017 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin and Silver Medal.

In addition, the CCAC will discuss themes for a proposed series of bronze national medals to accompany the commemorative 2017 World War I Silver Dollars. Last week, the United States Mint opened its designed competition for the silver dollars.
