CCAC Releases 2015 Native American Dollar Candidate Designs
The Citizens Coinage Advisory Commission (CCAC) has released the following images of candidate designs for the 2015 Native American dollar coin. The 2015 Native American dollar reverse will highlight the role of Mohawk Ironworkers in the construction of bridges and skyscrapers that make up the modern American skyline.
Since 2009, the United States Mint in accordance with an Act of Congress, has released the Native American golden dollar with new reverses each year to celebrate the many contributions Native Americans have made throughout United States history.
For the 2015 Native American dollars, a total of 20 designs were up for consideration (design candidate 2015-NA-R-01 was not released by the Mint). The CCAC will forward their recommendations to the Secretary of the Treasury. In addition, the candidate designs will be reviewed by the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), the Committee on Indian Affairs of the Senate, the Congressional Native American Caucus of the House of Representatives, and the National Congress of American Indians. The Secretary of the Treasury has ultimate authority over the selection of the coin’s design.
