Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*On June 8-9, 1998, the Committee met in open session in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during which it received proposed design concepts suggested by the public, heard formal presentations from members of the public, reviewed historical United States coin designs, and developed decision factors necessary for selecting a design concept that best represents America and comports with the parameters established in its charter.
How is membership balanced?*The Secretary of the Treasury appoints a Chairman who serves as a non-voting member.The Committee is composed of seven to thirteen individuals. Members are appointed by the Secretary from both Government and the private sector and should represent a cross-section of interests that may include the fields of history, the arts, finance, entertainment, education, literature, and journalism.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The DCDAC held only one two-day meeting which included public presentations, and was open to the public.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The United States $1 Coin Act of 1997 (P.L. 105-124), was signed into law on December 1, 1997. The legislation requires the Treasury to place into circulation a new $1 coin, similar in size to the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) $1 coin, golden in color, and with a distinctive edge, upon depletion of the SBA stockpile. The legislation requires that the Secretary, in consultation with Congress, select the designs for the obverse and reverse sides of the $1 coin. The reverse side of the coin is required by statute to depict an eagle; the concept for the obverse side is subject to the Secretary’s discretion. The Committee is necessary to consider design concepts for the obverse design of the new $1 coin, and recommend to the Secretary of the Treasury a single such design concept.
