Dear Mr. Peterson:
In its meeting of 19 May, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed alternative designs for the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center one-dollar commemorative coin, to be issued in support of the endowment for the existing museum facility adjacent to Fort Benning in Georgia.
For the obverse, the Commission members recommended alternative #3 due to the strong and familiar pose of the infantry leader and the recognizable setting on a rocky base. For the reverse, the Commission members recommended alternative #7 for its simplicity and clarity, and supported the museum board's preference for spelling out the denomination "One Dollar."
As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
