The Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP), a free online numismatic archive and encyclopedia, has added the latest annual report of the U.S.-based Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC), which reports recommendations on coin designs to the treasury secretary.
The latest addition joins 19 earlier CCAC reports dating back to 2003 on the NNP, which is funded by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. The 2022 report covers the CCAC’s fiscal year – Oct. 1, 2021-Sept. 3, 2022 – in a “greatly expanded format, initiated in 2020,” according to a statement issued by the portal. Offering “a full picture of this organization that helps guide the artistic direction of the U.S. Mint,” the report highlights CCAC meetings and candidate designs with appendices providing committee minutes, committee member bios and a historical census of the membership, added the NNP statement.
“These reports will be an invaluable guide to numismatic historians of the future seeking insights into the development of today’s (U.S.) Mint products. Such information is often challenging to extract from 19th- and 20th-century archives, and the CCAC is to be acknowledged for carefully documenting their work in this area.”
