US Mint Requesting CCAC Applications to Represent Interests of Public

by CoinNews.net on May 28, 2020 · 1 comment

The United States Mint is accepting applications through June 19, 2020 for appointment to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) as a member representing the interests of the general public.

George Washington Crossing the Delaware River Quarter, Designs 9A-12

The CCAC reviews and recommends designs for medals and coins, like these proposed designs for the reverse of the 2021 George Washington Crossing the Delaware River Quarter

Authorized by the enactment in 2003 of Public Law 108-15, the CCAC advises the Secretary of the Treasury on design and theme proposals for U.S. coins and medals.

There are 11 CCAC members. Appointed by the Secretary, each serves a four-year term with:

  • One person specially qualified by virtue of his or her education, training, or experience as nationally or internationally recognized curator in the United States of a numismatic collection;
  • One person specially qualified by virtue of his or her experience in the medallic arts or sculpture;
  • One person specially qualified by virtue of his or her education, training, or experience in American history;
  • One person specially qualified by virtue of his or her education, training, or experience in numismatics;
  • Three persons who can represent the interests of the general public in the coinage of the United States; and
  • Four persons appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury on the basis of the recommendations by the House and Senate leadership.

The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, June 19, 2020.

Candidates should include specific skills, abilities, talents, and credentials to support their applications. The U.S. Mint is also interested in candidates who in addition to their general interest in numismatics:

  • have demonstrated interest and a commitment to actively participate in 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
  • who are free of professional, political, or financial interests that could negatively affect their ability to provide impartial advice.

Those wishing to be considered should send a resume with cover letter by email to info@ccac.gov. Because of the COVID-19 national emergency, the U.S. Mint will not be accepting applications by mail.

The United States Mint will review all applications and forward them to the Secretary of the Treasury for consideration.

I would love to see the U.S. Mint design a set of coins honoring and depicting Healthcare Workers during these desperate times due to Covid 19 Pandemic. True Heros!!!
