MEMBERS OF THE CITIZENS COINAGE ADVISORY COMMITTEE

E-Sylum reader Kavan Ratnatunga in Sri Lanka was the first to
locate the web page for the U.S. Mint's Citizens Coinage Advisory
Committee.  The members are:

John K. Alexander
Leon G. Billings
Bill Fivaz
Dr. Rita Laws
Dr. Mitchell Sanders
Donald Scarinci
Kenneth Thomasma
Dr. Ute Wartenberg Kagan
Sherl Joseph Winter

U.S. Mint's Citizens Coinage Advisory

David Ganz adds: "It's not the Mint, but an independent entity."

[Dave's correct - the committee was set up by Congress as an
independent advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the themes
and designs of all U.S. coins and medals.  According to the web
site, "The CCAC serves as an informed, experienced and impartial
resource to the Secretary of the Treasury and represents the
interests of American citizens and collectors."

Dave ought to know - he was a member of the CCAC from 1993 to 1996.
There are short biographies of each of the current members on the
web site.  The committee's next scheduled meeting is June 21.
The web site is very sparse however, and does not (that I can find
anyway) state which committee member fills which role as defined
by the enacting legislation.

As I suspected, we do have some E-Sylum subscribers on the current
committee, including Dr. Ute Wartenberg Kagan of the American
Numismatic Society. -Editor]
