The original June 16 posting of this article was accompanied by the
incorrect obverse recommendation. The correct selection is now illustrated:
The Citizens Coinage
Advisory Committee reviewed designs for the National Park Service 100th anniversary
commemorative coin lineup as part of its June 16 agenda.
The 2016 NPS program is set to include a gold $5 coin, a silver dollar, and a copper-nickel clad half dollar, with surcharges
on each coin sold benefitting the National Park Foundation.
For the half dollar, the CCAC recommended an obverse design showing
a youbng boy discovering the wonders of nature through binoculars. The
reverse recommendation depicts the skeleton of a dinosaur.
A maximum of 1,350,000 total Proof and Uncirculated coins will be
issued — 750,000 half dollars; 500,000 dollars; and 100,000 $5 coins.
