CCAC Releases Candidate Images for World War II 75th Anniversary Medals

As reported last week, the Citizens Coinage Advisory Council (CCAC) is set to meet next Tuesday, January 21, 2020. That meeting is set to discuss designs for medals and a 24-karat gold coin commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. In a rare step, CCAC has released candidate images for these medals and coin before the actual meeting.

Traditionally, CCAC does not release candidate images of medals or coins until after the meeting itself, making the release of the images below a rare event. It also suggests that the designs have long been in development by Mint artists.
