Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee


October 10, 2006
The Honorable Henry M. Paulson, Jr.
Secretary of the Treasury
Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20220
Dear Secretary Paulson,
A public meeting of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee was held on September
28, 2006, via teleconference. Attending the meeting were John Alexander, Leon Billings,
Bill Fivaz, Ute Wartenberg Kagan, Rita Laws, Mitch Sanders, Donald Scarinci, Ken
Thomasma, and Joe Winter.
The committee considered proposed designs for the Congressional Gold Medal honoring
the Tuskegee Airmen. The CCAC recommends the proposed design for the obverse of
the medal, which was widely praised by committee members. For the reverse, the
committee recommends that the inscription at the bottom of the design should be
modified. The CCAC’s recommended wording is “Outstanding Combat Record
Contributed to Integration of the Military.”
