CCACThe Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a teleconference meeting today, Oct 25, to review candidate designs for the Bob Dole Congressional Gold Medal and consider themes for the 2019 American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Coins.

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

Congress voted this year to award World War II veteran and former U.S. Senate majority leader Bob Dole with a Congressional Gold Medal in recognition of his service to the nation as a soldier, legislator, and statesman. The United States Mint will strike the medal along with bronze duplicates for the public. The CCAC will review proposed designs for the medal.

On Oct. 6, 2017, President Trump signed into law the American Legion 100th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Act. The Act directs the United States Mint in 2019 to produce and sell $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half dollars to recognize the 100th anniversary of the American Legion. The CCAC will discuss possible themes for the commemorative coins.

Meeting Time

The teleconference meeting begins at 3:00 p.m. and is scheduled to last until 4:00 p.m. (ET).

Interested members of the public may dial in to listen by calling (866) 564-9287 and using Access Code: 62956028. Dial-in access is "listen only," and phones must be kept on mute to not disturb the discussion.

In addition, anyone interested in submitting ideas for the CCAC’s consideration may fax them to (202) 756-6525.

No disrespect to Bob Dole, I’m grateful for his service for our country, but why? get in line. Why not start with *Boston Patriot* *Sam Adams* & the *SONS OF LIBERTY* coin & work your way up. Their merits and services & sacrifices* and suffering*+* are beyond all calculation. + Sams dad made a great beer in his day. Let the 22 century US Mint take care of Bob, Mr. McCain* your right up in front of the line with them thanks.
