The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a one-hour teleconference meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16, to review new designs for two of the five 2017 America the Beautiful Quarters.
The CCAC advises the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to United States coins and medals.
In October, the committee reviewed design candidates for all five 2017 quarters. Tuesday’s meeting will include discussions on old, re-worked and completely new designs.
Members were able to recommend quarter designs for the District of Columbia’s Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, Missouri’s Ozark National Scenic Riverways, and Indiana’s George Rogers Clark National Historical Park. However, they wanted to see more design options for Iowa’s Effigy Mounds National Monument quarter and New Jersey’s Ellis Island National Monument quarter. Members will have that chance on Tuesday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (EDT).
Interested members of the public may attend the meeting at:
