On Tuesday, Jan. 24, the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) will hold a two-hour teleconference meeting to review candidate designs for the Harlem Hellfighters Congressional Gold Medal.
The CCAC is tasked with advising the Secretary of the Treasury on themes and designs pertaining to all United States coins and medals.
Public Law 117-38, introduced as the Harlem Hellfighters Congressional Gold Medal Act, awards a Congressional gold medal to the 369th Infantry Regiment, commonly known as the "Harlem Hellfighters," in recognition of their bravery and outstanding service during World War I.
In addition to U.S. coinage, the United States Mint strikes national medals like Congressional gold medals. The U.S. Mint also produces duplicates of them in bronze. Public Law 117-38 authorized the Mint to sell Harlem Hellfighters Bronze Gold Medals to the public at prices "sufficient" to cover their costs.
CCAC Meeting Time and Public Listening Option
The public CCAC meeting on the 24th begins at 1:00 p.m. and is scheduled to last until 3:00 p.m. (EST).
