CCAC to Review 2021 Peace and Morgan Silver Dollar Designs

6

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a 90-minute meeting by teleconference on Tuesday, Jan. 19, to review and discuss candidate designs for the 2021 Morgan and Peace centennial silver dollars.

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

Authorized under Public Law 116-286, the United States Mint will strike and sell silver dollars recognizing the centennial anniversary in 2021 of the transition from the Morgan to Peace designs. The 2021 dollars must feature designs that are renditions of those historically used on the obverse and reverse of the original iconic silver dollars.

Meeting Time

The CCAC meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. and is scheduled to last until 12:00 p.m. (EST).

Members of the public may dial in to listen to the meeting at (888) 330-1716 and using access code: 1137147.

For members of the public, this teleconference meeting is for "listen purposes only" — no comments or questions will be taken, and phones must be muted. Instead, those interested in offering matters for the CCAC’s consideration are invited to submit them by email to info@ccac.gov.

As they are, I would assume, old designs, why do they have to go through the CCAC and CFA? Haven’t they already been approved by the Secretary of the Treasury, John Sherman (in 1878) and Andrew Mellon (1921)?

OK so this is an easy one. take the old designs off shelf and re-use them. I don’t see how they could do any other design that would make any sense – if they somehow manage to come up with one then I’m not interested.

The Mint no longer has the original designs in whole. They have pieces. On the conference call they said they would try to be as close as possible to the original designs.

There will be 5 different Morgan Silver dollars. Mint mark with D and S. No Mint mark for P and Philadelphia will mint coins with CC and O privy marks…

Wish they would have shipped a press to Carson City and Orleans and actually minted them there… make the mintage lower for those two

There is a press in Carson city that was used to make coins there. It had been used in other mints previously.

It would be reasonably easy to ship another press to New Orleans and run the coins. The mint building is now used as a museum. Move some things around and mint coins in the building.
