1. Chairperson Marks called the meeting to order at 9:17 A.M.
2. The letter and minutes of the April 26, 2012 meeting were unanimously approved.
3. Ron Harrigal of the United States Mint presented the candidate designs for the
Five Star Generals Commemorative Coin Program, inclusive of a $5 gold coin, $1
silver coin and a clad half dollar.
4. After Mr. Harrigal’s presentation the Committee discussed the directive and
legislative intent of Public Law 111-262 that the program recognize and celebrate
the attendance and graduation of Generals Douglas MacArthur, George C.
Marshall, Henry H. Arnold, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Omar N. Bradley from
the Command and General Staff College located at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. It
was noted that contrary to the legislative directive and intent for the program
reverse designs provided for the $5 gold coin and $1 silver coin featured other
themes. It was also noted that reverse designs for the clad half dollar utilized
themes associated with the Command and General Staff College. A motion was
made by Mr. Olson, and seconded by Ms. Stevens-Sollman, that the Committee
select reverse designs for the $5 gold coin and the $1 silver coin only from among
designs provided by the Mint for the clad half dollar. The motion was approved
on a vote of seven (7) ayes and three (3) nays.
5. After each member had commented on the candidate 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 (10) members
voting, the maximum possible point total was 30. By Committee rule, a majority

of the maximum possible point total (i.e. 16) was required to garner the
Committee’s recommendation. The committee’s scores for the Five Star Generals
Commemorative Coin Program were:
