The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will meet Tuesday, Oct. 16, to talk about designs concepts for Native American $1 Coins and American Platinum Eagles and to review candidate designs for two military medals.
The CCAC is tasked with advising the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to United States coins and medals.
Agenda topics scheduled for the upcoming meeting include:
- review and discussion of concepts for the 2021 and 2022 Native American $1 Coins;
- design concepts for the 2021-2025 American Eagle Platinum Coin series; and
- candidate designs for the 2020 Coast Guard Medal and the 2020 Air Force Medal.
Introduced in 2009, the United States Mint’s Native American $1 Coin Program features annually changing designs that celebrate the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the history and development of the United States.
Proof American Platinum Eagles for years 2021 to 2025 will showcase designs that celebrate the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to peaceably assemble, and freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
As announced earlier this year, the U.S. Mint beginning in 2020 will offer medals celebrating branches of the U.S. military. Discussed plans included bronze and silver versions that would be released over the course of three years.
