Previous Review


Dear Mr. Moy:

In its meeting of 16 April, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the proposed reverse design for the 2010 issue of the Native American One Dollar Coin. The Commission members recommended alternative #5 depicting a banded cluster of arrows because of the visual clarity and strength of this composition. They commented that the tree motif which formed the basis of the other alternative designs was not well suited to the small scale of the coin.

As there was not a quorum present during the review of the submission, this recommendation will be placed on the agenda for confirmation at the Commission's meeting of 21 May. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
