CCACThe Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will meet Tuesday, Sept. 19, to appraise revised designs for the Office of Strategic Services Congressional Gold Medal (OSS) and review designs for the 2019-dated coins from the United States Mint’s program of America the Beautiful Quarters®.

The CCAC is tasked with advising the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to all United States coins and medals.

Introduced in 2010, the 56-quarter series honors national sites throughout the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories.

Year 2019 marks the series 10th year and the 46th to 50th coins. The quarter-dollars will showcase designs emblematic of Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts, American Memorial Park in Northern Mariana Islands, War in the Pacific National Historical Park in Guam, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park in Texas and Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho.

The Congressional Gold Medal will honor members of the OSS for their service and contributions during World War II. The OSS was America’s first effort to implement a system of strategic intelligence, preceding the CIA, the U.S. Special Operations Command and the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research

The CCAC meeting will also cover the approval of annual reports.
