Regarding Tim Shuck's CoinLink opinion piece on designing U.S. coins, Donald Scarinci sent the following reply to CoinLink, copying The E-Sylum:
"We agree that design by committee is not the optimal way to produce
attractive coins and medals. You seem to suggest that there is another way but after you criticize the CCAC for trying you don't suggest anything. I would love to take your suggestions and the suggestions of your readers back to the CCAC coin design subcommittee at our meeting on Monday.
There are few people more critical of the US Mint than me, but criticism
alone does not change things. We need to offer suggestions and propose
changes that can be made to the process. Now is the time to hear it. So
please speak up. No one has a monopoly on good ideas.
