Letter

Dear Mr. Lebryk:

At its meeting of 16 February the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed obverse and reverse designs for the $5 gold coin and $1 silver coin of the Jamestown 400th Anniversary Commemorative Coin Program of 2007. The Commission's preferences were as follows:

Gold Coin Obverse: #GO-3, a portrait of Captain John Smith
Gold Coin Reverse: #GR-16, an American Indian figure in a canoe transporting a basket of corn. The Commission requested that the "$5" be written out as "Five Dollars" instead of using a dollar sign and a numeral.

Silver Coin Obverse: #SO-03, three profile portraits representing the racial groups involved with the Jamestown settlement.
Silver Coin Reverse: #SR-10, three ships in the water. They strongly recommended revision of the treatment of the water to be less intensely rendered.

Sincerely,

/s/

Thomas Luebke,AIA
Secretary
