Mitchell Sanders has been reappointed to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee by the U.S. Mint, but he will no longer be chairman.
According to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White, Sanders? reappointment to a new four-year term means his term as chair is over and he is back on the CCAC as a regular member.
The Rochester, N.Y., resident, who has chaired the CCAC since the resignation of embattled coin dealer Tom Noe last October, will serve a four-year term into 2010. Noe is the subject of a criminal investigation involving the investment of state Bureau of Workers? Compensation finances into coin investment funds.
No replacement for the CCAC chair has been named.
One of three members appointed to represent the general public, Sanders has been a member of the CCAC since 2003, serving as chairman of the committee from 2005 to 2006.
Sanders holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Rochester. He works as a research scientist in Rochester and is a member of the American Numismatic Association, the American Numismatic Society, the Ro-chester Numismatic Association, the Latin American Paper Money Society and the U.S. Mexican Numismatic Association.
