United States Mint Unveils Winning Designs to be Featured on World War I Centennial Silver Dollar

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint unveiled the winning designs in the World War I Centennial 2018 Commemorative Coin Design Competition today. The unveiling took place during the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The designs, by LeRoy Transfield of Orem, Utah, will be featured on the obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) of the World War I Centennial Silver Dollar scheduled for release next year.

“Our team at the U.S. Mint is proud to have the honor of crafting the coin that will commemorate the contributions and the history made by American men and women-of all walks of life-who bravely stepped forward 100 years ago to defend the interests of the nation and that of her allies,” said Thomas Johnson, Chief of the United States Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications, who spoke at the ceremony.

The obverse design, titled “Soldier’s Charge,” depicts an almost stone-like soldier gripping a rifle. Barbed wire twines in the lower right-hand side of the design. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “1918,” “2018,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

The wire design element continues onto the reverse design, titled “Poppies in the Wire,” which features abstract poppies mixed in with barbed wire. Inscriptions include “ONE DOLLAR,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

Now retired United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart sculpted both designs.

Additional participants in the unveiling included Under Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, U.S. World War I Centennial Commission Chair Robert Dalessandro, and World War I re-enactors who unveiled the designs.

The World War I American Veterans Centennial Commemorative Coin Act (Public Law 113-212) authorizes the minting and issuance of not more than 350,000 silver dollars in commemoration of the centennial of America’s involvement in World War I. A surcharge of $10 for each coin sold is authorized to be paid to the United States Foundation for the Commemoration of the World Wars to assist the World War I Centennial Commission in commemorating the centenary of World War I.

Additional details about the World War I Centennial Silver Dollar will be announced prior to the coin’s release in 2018.

2017-P Frederick Douglass 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Specimen Coin NGC SP70 First Releases

Founded in 1988, the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site preserves the estate of a man who is considered to be one of the most prominent African-Americans of the 19th century.

Author, government official, journalist, and civil rights activist, Frederick Douglass began his career when he purchased his freedom between 1847 and 1848. Instead of participating in a campaign of violence, he chose to use the power of words to fight slavery. When criticized for his discussions with slave owners, he declared: ”I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”

United States Mint Launches Public Design Competition for Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint is pleased to announce a call for artists to design both the obverse and reverse of the commemorative coin that will acknowledge America’s fight against breast cancer. Authorized by law, the Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Act recognizes the many Americans who are impacted by the disease and the effort to prevent it through research. The competition invites artists to design images emblematic of the fight against breast cancer, with the winning artist to be awarded $10,000 and have his or her initials included on the minted coins. The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Program includes a gold, silver, and clad coin, with the gold version to be made of pink gold, a first for the United States Mint. Full details, including access to entry, rules, and deadlines, are available at

“The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Design Competition provides a special opportunity for artists to capture and convey the spirit of the American public to overcome this disease,” said Rhett Jeppson, Principal Deputy Director of the United States Mint. “This commemorative coin, designed by and for the public, will hold special significance to all the people impacted by breast cancer.”

The public competition is being conducted in two phases. Phase One, which is open today through October 17, 2016, or until 1,000 entries are received, calls for artists age 18 and older to submit portfolios of their prior work. From these entries, an expert jury will select no more than 20 applicants to participate in Phase Two. During Phase Two, artists will be paid a stipend of $1,000 to submit designs for the obverse and reverse of the coin. The designs can be conveyed and submitted as print or physical renderings or both. The winning artist will receive an additional $10,000 and will have his or her initials included on the coin. The final winner will be announced in June 2017. The competition can be accessed online at, which also provides rules, details, and timelines.

An expert jury composed of members of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee will review and score design submissions. Both of these groups provide experienced and impartial expertise in advancing the state of public art and the interests of American citizens and coin collectors.

With the winning design selected, the United States Mint will begin issuing gold, silver, and clad commemorative coins in 2018. The gold versions will be the first “pink gold” coins in the U.S. and will contain not less than 75 percent gold, as mandated by the law. Surcharges for this program are authorized to be paid to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, based in New York City, to further its efforts in breast cancer research.

“Every year, thousands of women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer, and this coin design competition will provide an outlet to symbolize the important efforts underway to cure and eliminate this disease,” said Jeppson.

There have been only a handful of open design competitions in modern history in which the United States Mint has called upon the public to submit designs for a coin. Most recently, the United States Mint held a competition earlier this year for the World War I American Veterans Centennial Commemorative Coin, with surcharges authorized to assist in the funding of the National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C.
