Previous Review


Dear Ms. Fore:

The Commission of Fine Arts reviewed designs for the 2004 reverse of the Platinum Bullion Coin at its 19 February meeting and approved design #4, one of those based on Daniel Chester French's sculpture, "America".

The recommendation was that the design be kept as simple as possible, considering the difference in scale between the very large original sculpture and the small size of the coin on which the adaptation will appear.
