1. Chairperson Marks called the meeting to order at 8:30 A.M.
2. A motion was made by Mr. Olson, and seconded by Mr. Meier, to approve the
minutes from the June 28, 2010 meeting. The motion was unanimously approved.
3. Chairperson Marks recognized the attendance of several United States Mint artists
at the meeting, including John Mercanti, Don Everhart, Joe Menna, Phebe
Hemphill and Renata Gordon.
4. Recognizing the value of an ongoing dialogue with the artists, Chairperson Marks
announced that it would be his standing policy to request that a representative of
the art staff be present at all future meetings of the CCAC (Committee).
5. Ms. Wastweet made a motion, seconded by Mr. Meier, that a new operating
policy be created to modify the Committee’s design scoring system. The new
policy stipulates that in all future design evaluation processes the candidate design
earning the highest point total in excess of 50 percent of the possible points will
be the Committee’s recommended design. In the event that none of the candidate
designs tallies over 50 percent, no recommendation will be made. The motion
was unanimously approved.

6. Kaarina Budow of the United States Mint presented proposed obverse designs for
the 2012 Presidential $1 Coins, honoring Presidents Chester A. Arthur, Grover
Cleveland (1st term), Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland (2nd term).
7. At the completion of discussions concerning the designs, Committee members
rated proposed designs by assigning 0, 1, 2, or 3 points to each, with higher points
reflecting more favorable evaluations. With ten members voting, the maximum
possible point total was 30, and the point threshold necessary for any design to be
recommended was 16. The Committee’s ratings were:
