The United States Mint recently provided another set of candidate designs for two of the 2013 America the Beautiful Quarters. The second round of designs was prepared after the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA) and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) had failed to make a recommendation from the first set of designs provided for the 2013 Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Quarter and the 2013 Fort McHenry National Monument Quarter.
The original set of designs were reviewed by the CFA on October 20, 2011 and the CCAC on November 29, 2011. Follow the links for images of the original design candidates and the comments from the reviews.
In the first round only three different choices were provided for Perry’s Victory Quarter and four choices for the Fort McHenry Quarter. In the second round there were eight different candidates for Perry’s Vicory and eleven different candidates for Fort McHenry. The CFA reviewed these newly prepared candidates on February 16, while the CCAC will make their review on February 28.
CoinWorld has reported that the CFA made a recommendation for one of the Perry’s Victory designs, but rejected the the designs for the Fort McHenry.
All of the new design candidates are shown below.
