The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) has released the candidate designs for the upcoming Secretary of the Treasury Medal honoring the 77th Secretary, Steven Mnuchin. The medal, set for release next year, will be a 3-inch bronze medal and continues one of the newer medal series offered by the United States Mint.
The Secretary of the Treasury Medal series began in 2017, honoring the 74th Secretary, Henry Paulson. All of the medals honoring the previous Secretary’s can be found at this link on the Mint’s site. Once it is released, the medal for Secretary Mnuchin will be added to the page.
Here are the design candidates for the medal released last week by CCAC:
Final designs for the Secretary of the Treasury Medal will be selected late this year or early in 2021. The medal itself will then go to production and be available likely in mid-2021.
The Secretary of the Treasury is the head of the United States Department of the Treasury which is concerned with all financial and monetary matters relating to the federal government, and, until 2003, also included several major federal law enforcement agencies. This position in the federal government of the United States is analogous to the Minister of Finance in many other countries. The Secretary of the Treasury is a member of the President’s Cabinet, and is nominated by the President of the United States. Nominees for Secretary of the Treasury undergo a rigorous confirmation hearing before the United States Senate Committee on Finance before being voted on by the United States Senate.Wikipedia

He’s the 4th Secretary to get a mint medal? Not much of a tradition, and perhaps an imperial one that should be quickly ended; his signature, after all, is already on the currency. But in any case an unfortunate choice as his California bank was known as the Great Recession’s “Foreclosure Machine.” Oh well.
