The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a two-day public meeting by teleconference beginning Tuesday, March 10, to review and discuss candidate designs for 2020 coins honoring George H.W. and Barbara Bush and for 2021 American Innovation dollars for New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, and North Carolina.
The CCAC is tasked with advising the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to all United States coins and medals.
Specifically, agenda topics for the meeting include discussion of candidate designs for the:
- 2020 George H.W. Bush Presidential $1 Coin (clad)
- 2020 Barbara Bush First Spouse Gold Coin and Bronze Medal
- 2021 American Innovation dollars (clad)
The 2020 pieces continue the Presidential and First Spouse series that last saw releases in 2016 honoring Richard and Pat Nixon, Gerald and Betty Ford, and Ronald and Nancy Reagans. The series was extended with the passage earlier this year of the President George H.W. Bush and First Spouse Barbara Bush Coin Act (Public Law 116-112).
As directed by the American Innovation $1 Coin Act, the four 2021 Innovation dollars will feature designs honoring innovations or innovators from the states.
