The United States Mint today announced the reappointment of two members to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) -- Donald
Scarinci and Michael F. Moran.
Mr. Scarinci was reappointed based on the recommendation of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. Mr. Scarinci was first appointed to the CCAC
in 2005, and was reappointed in 2008 and 2012. Mr. Moran was reappointed based on the recommendation of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Mr.
Moran was first appointed in 2011.
Mr. Scarinci, the senior partner in one of the largest law firms in New Jersey, has been a collector of coins and medals for more than
30 years, and has written and lectured extensively about medallic art and design. In 2005, Mr. Scarinci was appointed by the Department of
the Treasury to serve on the CCAC and is now in his third term. He lends his expertise as a nominating judge for the Krause Coin of the
Year Award and serves on award committees for the American Numismatic Society and the American Numismatic Association.
Mr. Moran is an award winning numismatic author, lecturer, and researcher. His works include an article about the United States Mint at San
Francisco during the great earthquake of 1906, which won the American Numismatic Association's (ANA) 2006 Heath Literary Award, and the
masterwork Striking Change - The Great Artistic Collaboration of Theodore Roosevelt and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He currently serves as a managing
partner of a major building products supply company in western Colorado.
Established by the Secretary of the Treasury pursuant to an Act of Congress in 2003, the CCAC advises the Secretary on theme and design
proposals relating to circulating coinage, bullion coinage, Congressional Gold Medals, and national and other medals produced by the Mint.
The CCAC also makes commemorative coin recommendations to the Secretary and advises on the events, persons, or places to be commemorated,
as well as on the mintage levels and proposed designs. The CCAC submits an annual report to Congress and the Secretary describing its
activities and providing recommendations.
The Congressional leadership recommends candidates for four of the CCAC member positions to the Secretary of the Treasury from among
citizens who are specially qualified to serve by virtue of their education, training or experience. The Secretary fills seven additional
positions through an open application process from among citizens who are specially qualified - one in each of the following areas:
numismatic curation, medallic arts or sculpture, American history, and numismatics. The Secretary exercises direction and authority over
the CCAC. The Mint is responsible for providing the necessary administrative support, technical services, and advice to the CCAC.
