CCAC sends views to Treasury

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee had a busy day Oct. 16 in reviewing designs for multiple coin and medallic issues.

Preferences expressed at the meeting were transmitted to the Treasury secretary, who makes the final decision.

CCAC1113-1

The 2021 and 2022 Native American dollar designs will have military themes (shown above). The first design reads, “Native Americans – Distinguished Military Service Since 1775.” On the second is a portrait of Ely Parker, a member of the Seneca tribe who was a lieutenant colonel in the Union Army. He wrote the final draft of Confederate surrender terms at Appomattox.

CCAC1113-2

Service medal designs were also chosen for the Air Force (above) and the Coast Guard (below).

CCAC1113-3

Platinum coin designs were examined, but no official recommendations were made for the 2021-2025 program.
