Citizens Coin Advisory Committee

with one comment

Established in 2003, the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) is the “informed, experienced and impartial resource” of our United States numismatic future.   While Congress must authorize every coin and most medals that the United States Mint manufactures, it is the CCAC that advises the Secretary of the Treasury on what our country’s future coinage will look and feel like.  The CCAC submits a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury after each public meeting, next meeting being March 1, 2011.  Their site has a great resource to view past legislation about the historical events and personal achievements Congress honors through the authorization of coins and medals.
