Two new members have been appointed to the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee. Here are the announcements.
The United States Mint (Mint) announces the appointment of Darla Jackson to a four-year term as the member of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) Specially Qualified in Sculpture or Medallic Arts. She replaces Robin Salmon, who has served on the CCAC since 2018.
A sculptor residing in Philadelphia, Ms. Jackson received a BFA in Sculpture from Moore College of Art in 2003. After receiving a John S. and James L. Knight Arts Challenge Grant in both 2011 and 2013, she founded the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, a membership based community sculpture studio.
Her work has been shown in numerous exhibitions locally, at the Philadelphia Art Alliance; Seraphin Gallery; the Pennsylvanian Academy of the Fine Arts; the Woodmere Art Museum, and at a Wind Challenge exhibition at the Fleisher Art Memorial. Exhibitions nationwide at museums and galleries include the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts; Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, California; the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts in Wilmington, Delaware, and Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Her work has been shown internationally in Belgium and Germany, and she has lectured about her work at venues including the Barnes Foundation and the Wagner Free Institute of Science.
Jackson is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and teaches Sculpture workshops across the country. She is also an elected Sculptor member of the National Sculpture Society, and serves on its Honors and Awards Committee. In 2021, she joined the board of Philadelphia Sculptors.
I like Darla's work - see her website (linked below) for more.
The United States Mint (Mint) announces the appointment of Kellen Hoard to a four-year term as a member of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) representing the general public. He replaces Samuel Gill, who has served on the CCAC since 2018.

He has been a numismatist since he was nine years old, and in the years since has authored over a dozen numismatic articles in a wide variety of publications, spoken at events to hundreds of numismatists from around the world, worked as an intern at the Newman Numismatic Portal, and served as a member of the Board for the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association. He is a member of the American Numismatic Association, American Numismatic Society, Numismatic Bibliomania Society, Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association, and several other numismatic organizations. For his work in numismatics, he was selected as the 2021 American Numismatic Association Young Numismatist of the Year.
Outside of numismatics, Kellen has extensive experience in politics, civics, student journalism, and public policy. For his work in these fields, he has received various recognitions including: Emerging Leader (Harvard Institute of Politics); Courage in Student Journalism Award (Kent State University and the Student Press Law Center); Bryan Cameron Impact Scholar (Bryan Cameron Education Foundation: National Superior Award in Press Law and Ethics (Journalism Education Association and the National Student Press Association); and Outstanding Student Advocate of the Year (Washington State PTA).
Kellen's a longtime friend, member of NBS and former intern at the Newman Numismatic Portal. Good luck to him and Darla in their new appointments. The CCAC is an important body, and we all appreciate the time and effort that goes into making these recommendations.
