CoinWeek Podcast #33: Former CCAC Chairman Gary Marks Discusses Coin Design and the Future of Coins

Former CCAC Chairman Gary Marks is our guest in this 30-minute-plus-long episode of the CoinWeek Podcast. CoinWeek Editor Charles Morgan asks Gary the question nearly every collector wants answered: Why were classic coin designs better than what the Mint puts out today? Gary's answer may surprise you. We talk about the bureaucracy of the design process, whether the CCAC's critiques have ever angered coin designers, and of all of the modern coins Gary has seen come through the committee, which were his favorites. We also ask Gary about his silver round program and what it's like to restore an authentic Native American totem pole.
