One of America's great authors will be on two U.S. Mint commemorative
coins in 2016, and we can see the crop of designs from which the
Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee is choosing.
The Mint on Thursday released the 67 obverse and reverse designs the
CCAC considered for the two coins — one gold and one silver — that
will honor Mark Twain, author of classics that include The
Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

beginning with the 16 obverse designs for the gold coin.
