Dear Mr. Moy:

In its meeting of 21 May, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the design alternatives for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative One Dollar Silver Coin. The Commission members expressed support for a number of the options presented and concluded with the following recommendations:

Obverse: The Commission members supported both alternative ADV-O-01 and alternative ADV-O-07, with the comment that this alternative is particularly moving and well composed.

Reverse: The Commission members supported alternative ADV-R-01, which they appreciated for the quotation from President Abraham Lincoln.

The Commission members also reiterated their guidance for simplicity in the design of coins, and particularly urged that the number of elements in the designs be limited.

As always, the staff is available to assist you with future submissions.
