The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee has scheduled a special telephone meeting for April 8 to recommend a new reverse for the American Eagle silver bullion coin.

If the Mint follows the advice of CCAC members to adopt a new reverse design, it would be the first design change since the coin was introduced in November 1986.

Getting the reverse changed has been a longtime CCAC priority, mentioned for several years in the panel’s annual report.

CCAC Chairman Gary Marks announced the plans for the telephone meeting during a March 11 meeting in Washington as the panel was considering several eagle designs proposed for other coins.
