Dear Secretary Mnuchin,
A telephonic meeting of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) was held on
Tuesday, January 16, 2018, to review and discuss the reverse design for the 2019
America the Beautiful Quarter Program quarter honoring American Memorial Park
(Northern Mariana Islands). The site liaison, Theo Chargualaf, attended by telephone
and guided the committee members regarding native dress and ethnicity to ensure the
accuracy of the design.
Thirteen different designs were presented. After discussing the merits of the art
presented to the committee, a motion was made and passed by a vote of 6–1 to
recommend design MP2-04, depicting a young Chamorro woman wearing traditional
dress, resting her hand on the plaque with text honoring the sacrifice of those who died in
the liberation of Saipan. This design was favored by the liaison and other park
employees.
Best regards, I am

Mary N. Lannin
