The United States Mint is seeking applicants for two appointments to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC). There are two open positions – one for a member to represent the interests of the general public in the coinage of the United States, and one for a member specially qualified to serve by virtue of their experience in the medallic arts or sculpture.

The deadline to email submissions for the general public representative is no later than 5 p.m. EST on Sept. 2, and the deadline to email submissions for the specialist in medallic arts or sculpture is no later than 5 p.m. EST on Sept. 5, 2022. The 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.

The CCAC is composed of 11 members: one specially qualified in numismatic collection curation, one specially qualified in the medallic arts or sculpture, one specially qualified in American history, one specially qualified in numismatics, three individuals representing the interests of the general public and four individuals recommended by the leadership of both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. CCAC members serve terms of four years and are Special Government Employees, who are subject to applicable conflict of interest laws and ethics regulations.

Any member of the public wishing to be considered for appointment to the CCAC should submit a resume and cover letter designating the position they are interested in and describing their qualifications for membership by email to info@ccac.gov, Attn: Jennifer Warren.
