This post continues coverage of the design candidates recently released by the United States Mint for the 2016 Mark Twain Commemorative Coin Program.
Under the authorizing legislation, up to 100,000 $5 gold coins and 350,000 silver dollars are to be issued in commemoration of Mark Twain. The designs are to be emblematic of his life and legacy and will be selected by the Secretary of the Treasury following consultation with the Board of the Mark Twain House and Museum, Commission of Fine Arts, and review by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.
For the silver dollar, the US Mint prepared 15 different obverse and 14 different reverse design candidates, which are shown below. Coverage of the review and recommendations of the CCAC and CFA will follow.
The design candidates images for the $5 gold coin can be seen in this post.
