A notice posted to the Federal Register has provided more detail on an upcoming Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting scheduled for June 27. Mint News Blog first announced the meeting on May 28, but specifics on its time and location were not shared until earlier this week.
The CCAC will meet on June 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Gaylord Hall in the Worner Center on Colorado College’s campus; the address is 902 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80903. The campus will play host to the American Numismatic Association’s Summer Seminar from June 18-30.
As noted earlier, the CCAC meeting will be open to the public as well as to students, teachers, and ANA staff, with topics of discussion set to include proposals for 2018 America the Beautiful quarter designs, sketches for President Obama’s presidential medals (terms one and two), and the future of the palladium coinage program.
The new notice also points out that the committee will elect jurors for the Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin competition. At the conclusion of the meeting, a forum will be held in which members of the public can share their input with the CCAC.
Not included in the new notice is the CCAC’s plan to host a breakfast on the morning of Tuesday, June 28, which is open to attendees of the Summer Seminar.
The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee was created in 2003 to advise the U.S. Treasury Secretary on themes, designs, mintages, and proposals regarding our nation’s coins, medals, and commemorative issues. Four spots on the 11-person committee are reserved for candidates nominated by members of Congress, while the remaining seven seats are filled by one individual with knowledge in American history, one with expertise in numismatics, one with experience in numismatic curation, one with knowledge in medallic arts or sculpture, and three who are deemed qualified to represent the interests of the general public.
Those interested in attending can call the CCAC hotline at (202) 354-7502 to receive updates in the event that adjustments are made to the meeting time or room location.
