The CCAC reviews designs for U.S. coins and medals, like these candidates for 2018, 2019 and 2020 Proof American Platinum Ealges

The U.S. Mint is accepting applications for an appointment to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC).

Authorized by the enactment of Public Law 108-15, the CCAC’s main task is to advise the Secretary of the Treasury on theme or design proposals for U.S. coins and medals. Total membership consists of 11 members, each appointed to serve a four-year term.

The new member will represent the interests of the general public. The U.S. Mint is interested in candidates who:

  • are recognized as having unique and valued talents or as an accomplished professional;
  • have demonstrated experience, knowledge, interest, or background in a variety of fields, including numismatics, art, education, working with youth, or American heritage and culture;
  • have demonstrated interest and a commitment to actively participate in CCAC meetings and activities, and a demonstrated understanding of the role of the CCAC and the obligations of a Special Government Employee;
  • possess demonstrated leadership skills in their fields of expertise or discipline;
  • possess a demonstrated desire for public service and have a history of honorable professional and personal conduct, as well as successful standing in their communities; and
  • are free of professional, political, or financial interests that could negatively affect their ability to provide impartial advice.

Send resumes with cover letters by email to info@ccac.gov, by fax to 202-756-6525, or by mail to:

Attn: Greg Weinman
United States Mint
801 9th Street NW.
Washington, DC 20220

Submissions must be postmarked no later than Friday, Oct. 21, 2016.

I’m not sure but I don’t think it is going to change a thing! This committee has been around for a while. They are just looking for another member to fill a spot. I think? Could someone let me know if I’m right or wrong???

Joera: to paraphrase what the financial guys say, “past performance of the CCAC is not an indicator of future results” but my 2¢ piece is that you’re 100% on the mark.

joera –

This committee is a mix of 11 people who rarely agree on anything. They are only an advisory committee & the final decision on coin & medal designs is totally up to the Secretary of the Treasury, & even he has selected final designs that the CCAC didn’t vote on. It is really just a committee to make people feel they have input into coin & medal designs.

So nothing is going to change.

Yup, the CCAC is just a requirement that the US Mint has to accommodate by law. Would they even have it otherwise? And there is also this Commission for Fine Arts whose advice the Mint also has to listen to
