CCAC to review coin and medal designs in Philadelphia

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet May 19 in Philadelphia to review proposed coin and medal designs, including those for the 2015 March of Dimes commemorative coin program.

The CCAC’s noon to 5:30 p.m. public session is scheduled to be held at Omni Hotel at Independence Park, 401 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia.

The CCAC’s May 19 public session is for the review and discussion of candidate designs for the following programs:

? Fallen Heroes of 9/11 congressional gold medal

? 2015 March of Dimes commemorative silver dollar

? Candidate designs for the Code Talkers congressional gold medals (Crow Tribe)

? 2016 America the Beautiful quarter dollars honoring Shawnee National Forest (Illinois), Cumberland Gap National Historical Park (Kentucky), Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (West Virginia), Theodore Roosevelt National Park (North Dakota), and Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument in South Carolina).
