Applicants are sought for two positions on the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC).
One position is earmarked for someone who is specially qualified by virtue of his or her education, training, or experience in numismatic curation and one represents the interests of the general public in the coinage of the United States.
The application deadline is Sept. 15. The United States Mint will review all applications and forward recommendations to the Secretary of the Treasury for consideration and appointment.
The CCAC was created to advise the Secretary of the Treasury on the selection of themes and design proposals for circulating coinage, bullion coinage, Congressional gold medals and other medals. The CCAC also advises the Secretary with regard to the events, persons, or places to be commemorated by the issuance of commemorative coins, as well as mintage levels and proposed designs of commemorative coins.
Individuals wanting to be considered for appointment should submit a letter, along with a resume or curriculum vitae, detailing specific educational credentials, skills, talents and experience. Applicants must specify the position for which they would like to be considered. Applications should be submitted by fax to 202-756-6830, or by mail to the United States Mint, 801 9th St., N.W., Washington, DC 20001, Attn: Andrew Fishburn. Submissions must be postmarked no later than Sept. 15.
