CCAC Public Forum at World’s Fair of Money

The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) has announced that it will be hosting a public forum during the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money convention. The public forum will take place in Room 336 of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Aug. 9 at 5:00 PM Eastern.

“As avid members of the hobby like you, Committee members have strong opinions about the designs for circulating and commemorative coins and medals that truly capture the spirit of our Nation. We look forward to hearing your perspectives on the themes and designs to best celebrate America’s history, achievements, and diverse culture, and to honor important historic events and remarkable people.”

While the CCAC holds meetings on a near-quarterly basis, those meetings for the public are listen-only without the opportunity to interact with the committee members or their agenda of items. This forum at the World’s Fair of Money, however, will be a great opportunity for the those attending the convention to listen, interact, and offer opinions to the committee. It is a rare opportunity.

In accordance with 31 U.S.C. 5135, the CCAC:

  1. Advises the Secretary of the Treasury on any theme or design proposals relating to circulating coinage, bullion coinage, Congressional Gold Medals, and national and other medals.
  2. Advises the Secretary of the Treasury with regards to the events, persons, or places to be commemorated by the issuance of commemorative coins in each of the five calendar years succeeding the year in which a commemorative coin designation is made.
  3. Makes recommendations with respect to the mintage level for any commemorative coin recommended.

The CCAC was established in 2003 by Congress under Public Law 108-15.
