Dear Mr. Ryder:
In its meeting of 20 September, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed alternative designs for the 2019 High Relief 24-Karat Gold $100 coin and the associated silver medal. The Commission members present at the meeting provided the following recommendations and comments.
The Commission members recommended alternative #10 for the obverse, citing the modern character and profile pose of the allegorical figure of Liberty. For the reverse, they recommended alternative #6, commenting that the radial pattern of the eagle’s wing would pair well with the headdress on the obverse.
As a quorum of the Commission was not present for the review of this submission, these recommendations will be placed on the administrative agenda for confirmation at the Commission’s meeting of 18 October. As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
/s/Thomas E. Luebke, FAIA
